How to restore address bar behavior and line height in 75.0?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

Hello,

You could try that workaround:

- Go to the "about:config" page - Search for "browser.urlbar.update1" - Set it to false and restart the browser

That should work for now.

However, please note that there is no guarantee that this will continue to work in the future and I can't even guarantee that it will work now.

Sorry about that.

Thank you. It worked. :)

It would be great if new features were optional and weren't pushed down our throat. It may be useful for some people but is really painful and annoying for advanced users accustomed to existing workflows.

Instead of introducing anti-features, developers could re-enable ALSA support and improve hardware acceleration capabilities on Linux. Linux computers still waste CPU to decode video, instead of GPU-accelereated decoding and that's about a 10-year-old technical debt.

That preference will not be there forever, which is why the preference has a generic name. It's only there for testing purposes at the moment and it will eventually be removed.

I've created some userChrome.css code to address the annoying growing and shrinking of the address bar, although it wouldn't adjust the spacing between the drop-down items. You can download the code from here.

If you've never used userChrome styling modifications before, refer to How to Create a userChrome.css File for more information.

Hope this helps.

In Firefox 78 you can try to create this new Number pref and set its value to 1.

  • ui.prefersReducedMotion = 1

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

You're a literal god. I avoided updating due to this visual change. I hate expanded UI elements, I like compacted, clean information. So many UI developers these days seem to think everything needs to be SUPER spaced out and having a ton of padding; I think they forget not everyone is using a touch screen. I've contacted Mozilla about making this change optional, multiple times. Thank you, sincerely, you don't know how much this means. Your guides are incredibly verbose, educational, and easy to follow, as well; you should be proud of yourself.

This is an absolutely incredible tool. However, I have to say...I am using Firefox again, today, after making these changes; I set "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to "true" yet, the address bar is showing as it's "updated" form, as if the .css file had no effect. I checked and the value is still set to "true". What could be the reasoning for this?

For some reason the userChrome.css fix appears to no longer be working at consistently. It seems as if I have to update it every time I restart my computer.
