The window at the top of my Firefox page used to have the following on the right hand side of the box (in left to right order): "show history" (which, when hovered over displayed a downward facing arrow); "toggle reader view"; "page actions"; "save to pocket"; and " bookmark this page". The "show history" button has disappeared. Does anyone know how to it back? I've attached a screenshot showing from left to right icons for "toggle reader view" "page actions" "save to pocket" and "bookmark this page." Thanks.

It appears firefox is working REALLY HARD to keep putting the Google search up in successive versions, changing code to subvert the wishers of firefox customers. What is the latest method to drop this? I like having previously visited sites up and this makes the limited list even more limited especially now that they've added search with Amazon as well. It seems like the best reasons to use Firefox are being taken away by Mozilla. Is there a new browser that addresses the concerns Firefox addressed in the past, i.e. not being a slave to a company obsessed with taking over your browser experience for their own advertising income? Firefox has nice features but I'd rather lose a few features if that's required to lose the forced advertising and/or forced extra steps to avoid using their "partner" program. (Ironically I use Google for searches now and will explore other options based on this situation.)

Search bar keeps showing my top eight sites, won't let me see URLs I use frequently

Ever since my Firefox updated to 75.0 yesterday (the 9th of April), whenever I want to type-in a URL I use frequently -for example, Twitter- the URL itself never shows-up as it did halfway through typing. Instead I have to put the whole thing in. What's more, no matter what, the top eight sites I have when I open a new tab are always the things the search bar suggests. I've turned off everything in the Search options, but I just want to be able to get back all of my URLs in the search bar, as it's far easier than having to constantly use Google to find them all, just as it's easier to have those URLs in the drop-down menu rather than what I see.

Is there any way I can fix this?

I would like to totally get rid of the blue bar that pops up under the address bar. Previously, setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to False did the trick. I found that solution in this article https://www.askvg.com/tip-remove-search-with-google-and-visit-website-options-from-firefox-addressbar-results/ Now on Firefox 75 I realized it's not working. The blue bar shows up if doing a search, using a URL shortcut (alias) or doing a quick search. It's add no value to me and is just clutter. I've been using Firefox since it's release in the early 2000s and the plain jane address/search bar has always worked for me. How can I get rid of the blue bar?

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

opened Firefox this morning, got the you have updated Firefox message and since then every SINGLE time i open a new tab the search/address bar doubles in size, gets a blue border and almost completely covers my bookmark bar. i have to click somewhere in blank page to get the search bar to reduce in size so i can see my bookmarks. and when i do click in search bar to type something it immediately doubles in size, gets a blue border and has a list of websites appear under the cursor. why would anyone think this is something that needed to be changed i don't know. how do i get the search bar to act like normal? i hate this doubling in size/blue border stupid thing and it makes Firefox very VERY annoying to use. especially since more often than not i open new tabs so i can click on my bookmarks. having to now click somewhere to get the search bar to become normal size just so i can actually SEE my bookmarks is REALLY ANNOYING! like find new browser annoying!

Like the title says. When not using tabs I don't need the height of the toolbars section doubled for... I really can not think of a good reason for this practice.

I know this has been gone over before but it is still an issue for me even if it is not one for Mozilla.

Please. Why do you add a Megabar without letting the users the abilitiy to disable it? https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/fwhlva/address_barawesomebar_design_update_in_firefox_75/

For now, it is possible to disable it. But, its just temporary. Why do u wonder when people switch to Chromium based Browsers? You just dont love us... I cant even install an XPI on Firefox Nightly, u know what people want i guess... The Megabar is so ugly, please. PLEASE dont let these things happen: Say goodbye to:

Looks ugly as hell. Or at least make it stop autofocusing on a new tab. How am I supposed to use this browser now when I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of disgust each time I open a new tab? When will web designers learn that mobile-first doesn't mean compromizing desktop experience. Jesus Christ.
