I don't want that search in the address bar. I want it turned off. It must have updated, because I got it turned off not long ago, and the settings I changed are the same as I left them. What new things do I have to change?

This is the old instruction, that worked until now. "If you mean the new popup/enlargement, type about:config and then 'browser.urlbar.update'. Turn all 4 to false or try each on their own as i'm not sure what specifically they do, but all 4 works for me."

Hi ct99246, you can forget the old instructions, let's focus on what we have now.

What are your pain points? For example:

(1) Drop down opens automatically when the cursor moves into the bar

You can disable this by toggling the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus preference to false in about:config. If you haven't used about:config before, see: Configuration Editor for Firefox. For Firefox 78-79, use the new preference browser.urlbar.suggest.topsites instead.

(2) Drop-down shows unwanted items in the Top Sites list

You can clean up the list on the new tab page: Customize the New Tab page.

If you don't use the built-in new tab page, you can turn off the top sites list on the Options/Preferences page: Hide or display content in New Tab.

(3) The button to Show History is missing

You can call up that list by typing a space in the address bar.

As a different workaround, I created an add-on for toolbar (outside of the drop-down, I can't integrate it with the drop-down): https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/show-history-top-sites-button/ -- if you try it, let me know if you have suggestions for improvements

(4) I don't like the enlargement

You can override this using style rules in a userChrome.css file. See: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289351#answer-1318441

You can set these prefs to false on the about:config page.

You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

keyword.enabled = false
browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches = false

FYI, the first one will prevent all searching from the address bar. Anything that isn't a real address will return an error page.

The second one isn't used in Firefox 77 any more.
