In version 75 when I click in the address bar, a list of my most common sites appears, but at the TOP of this list are search with google and also amazon.co.uk. These are options I do not want to see, just "my" web sites. How can I remove these two items from the drop down list? Thanks.

"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.

I do not care for how the address bar swells in size. I find it annoying and not useful as I use a separate search bar which is the ONLY reason I use Firefox instead of Chrome. Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

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!

Since FF75 whenever i open a new tab or type in the adressbar the adressbar enlarges unnecessarily (see red marking in the picture (b), (c)), bleeding over in the tabs above (a) and covering (darkening, with a shadow effect) the bookmarks below the addressbar (d).

to me this is completely unusable in this state and everytime i see it, it is highly disturbing to the eye. how do i get rid of this?

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

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.
