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.

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:

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

It now becomes bigger when you click on it or open a new tab, which is getting in the way of my toolbar. Is there a way to turn this feature off, and revert to the previous behavior (where it did not change size when clicked on or opened in a new tab?)

I know this seems like a small thing, but it's majorly getting in the way of me using my toolbar like I have in the past. To the point where I'm considering going back to Chrome. Please advise!

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!

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

I've changed the settings found in this thread to remove the suggestions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283813

I also want to revert the stupid focus effect on the search bar. This is a classic case of "don't fix what isn't broken". I'd love to know if the people making these decisions at Mozilla actually use their product. From my experience in large orgs with product owners, I'd bet my entire paycheck that they don't.

I do not care for how the address bar swells in size. I find it annoying and not useful as I use a separate search bar which is the ONLY reason I use Firefox instead of Chrome. Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

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.

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?
