The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

So with this most recent update for Firefox, the nature of my address bar has changed significantly and I am NOT a fan. I'm a creature of habit and like to have the sites I visit frequently on my address bar drop down for me to click on the fly. These mainly are comics I read and a couple other things. These, however, are now gone and replaced with my "top sites", none of which are the pages I frequently visit.

The new help pages are useless. I understand the update also includes security so I'm not looking to revert to an older version, I just want to revert the address bar back to how it was. Help, please.


I guess I shouldve dug a little deeper. In case any one has this same issue, the way to fix it (albeit temporarily?) is:

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter. (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus

and set its value to false

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.

The search bar now grows in all directions (not just the dropdown appearing below) any time it is selected, however it's just making the box bigger and creating more white space that is not used which is quite jarring.. I'm not sure if this is a bug or is supposed to be a UI 'improvement', but is there any way to disable this?

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.
