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.

Hi, as part of the update, you changed the behavior of the URL/search bar...

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!

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.

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.

How do I disable the englarged address bar when I focus on it?

As of Firefox 75, the address bar plumps out in an "enlarged" state. This is a new feature of Firefox 75, announced here: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/07/latest-firefox-updates-address-bar-making-search-easier-than-ever/

I'm wondering: how can I revert this back to how it was? I don't want it to plump out since it partly covers up the surrounding UI elements. I have a muscle memory for sometimes minimizing this bar with Escape, then clicking one of my bookmarks or one of the UI elements. I haven't had an issue seeing the address bar before, so this new feature is a detriment to me.

Thank you

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.
