I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

@cor-el You're ignoring about all @ChrisB was saying.

Hi titule, this support forum has a limited scope: support forum volunteers are not the developers. We can assist you with settings and workarounds, but we don't code Firefox or prioritize development decisions.

Did you have a question for us or did you stop by to voice your displeasure?

Well.. both then... How can I contact the developers to voice my displeasure?

This megabar an awful anti-feature. Removing even the about:config option to disable it shows Mozilla's contempt for users. It's clear there won't be a proper fix to this ever. Hopefully a more competent and respectful organization emerges from Mozilla's ashes.

Firefox 63+ has support for "@media (prefers-reduced-motion)" and you can create a new Number pref named ui.prefersReducedMotion on the about:config page to enable or block some animations. In Firefox 78+ this includes the location bar breakout. In Firefox 80+ this replaces the tab loading indicator with an hourglass.

  • set the value to 1 if you want to block animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 1
  • set its value to 0 if you want to see animations
    ui.prefersReducedMotion = 0

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

@cor-el I'm a bit confused now. Is there any difference to what you posted here answer-1338188 and answer-1330803 (where you said "that creating this ui.prefersReducedMotion pref effects more than just this case." ?
