Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?

Does anyone know of a SIMPLE solution to stop the irritating expanding address bar from doing just that? At first I could stop it in about:config - but that no longer appears to be possible. Why do Mozilla insist on user no longer having that option. I seem no longer to be able to use Firefox. It seems to be the domain of the computer-tech savvy and not a browser for ordinary jerks like me who don't understand a word of the jargon and have difficulty following what seem to be simple tasks to other users. All I want to do is stop that irritating expanding address bar but it seems like I have to become a fully skilled coder just to be able to get into a regular-joe website. It's not what I signed up for. Help? Anybody...?

i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

Again asking for help to turn off the popup urlbar "pic related",I have asked the same question back then in Nightly version 75.0a1 when this (irritating) feature was introduced and I tried the same steps but setting "browser.urlbar.update1" to "false" doesn't work.

is this permanent? if so why? if I wanted a bulky UI I would just use the Touch Mode or the Normal Mode, at least give us the option to turn it off/on, my problem with this is 1- it ruins the Perfect aesthetic of the UI and make FF looks like Quasimodo (just saying FF has the best UI out there) 2- it overlaps with other elements of the Compact UI like the bookmarks toolbar making it irritating as a "Jack Russell terrier"

and do me please a favor Don't ruin the compact UI

Hi,

I really really really hate the new address bar. In the last update it appeared in my browser and I had been able to make it go away with changing the following settings to false;


   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

I'm not sure if something updated between last night's shutdown and this morning's bootup but the ugly giant bar is back again and when I checked those settings in config they're all set to false. I tried toggling them true to false again but I can't get the old style bar back. I don't really want to revert to an older version as I know that's not secure. Does anyone have a way to get the bar back to how it used to be or is it time to use another browser?

Thanks!

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-firefox-address-bar?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

I have gone through and clicked a never ending amount of pages and I still cannot find an answer.

I don't want a never ending drop down menu it's annoying and distracting as well as pointless, since it is easy enough to do in the background, I don't need it constantly on in the foreground. There is enough constant garbage to have to sort through, I don't need more garbage added to the visual pile of steaming crap. KISS applies.

Yes I am not happy about it..

Thanks in advance.

I don't like the megabar, and I have looked around to see if there are any fixes for the most recent Firefox 77 update that forces that user to have it (like at least one other update, it just assumes that people like it). I have tried using the userChrome.css file, but that didn't work. I have also tried going into about:config, which also didn't work. Is there any possible way to say 'I never want to see this megabar again in my life'? Or a way to tell the devs that it should NOT be a default option on new updates? Or a way to turn it off that will always be around, unlike the about:config deal? Any help would be great. I attached an image of the megabar.

Its a Joke, Mozilla?

First at all, please fire this bad employee: https://www.camp-firefox.de/profil/1-s%C3%B6ren-hentzschel/

He close Topics like this, with no reason, he is not up to his job. He just rattles off his mandatory text and says we have to get used to it, with version 77 it will be standard.

I've been using Firefox for about 18 years now, I've even donated, I just wonder why this beta was released.

Generally I don't understand why designers are constantly tinkering with design everywhere, are designers currently on offer ?!

Now my problem: If the proportions fit, I shouldn't care, in this case the address line was simply enlarged without scaling the surroundings ... now I'm on the start page and have to be extremely precise so as not to accidentally open the address bar, which completely overlaps the bookmark symbols, great, really funny.

Problem turning off URL-bar auto-suggestions in Firefox

(I remember posting this before, but I am unable to find it anywhere. Perhaps it wasn't stored. I apologize in advance for duplicate posting!)

I use Firefox 75.0 (64-bits) on mac OS X Catalina for browsing. It gives me the following issue. When I start typing a youtube… URL in the address bar, a specific sub-page to the YouTube domain pops up first. It refers to s specific clip on youtube. While I’m typing, in front of it a grey star appears, such a marking a favorite. However, it’s NOT in my favorites. The auto-suggestions do not come from other opened tabs. This option is turned off. 
I don’t use any Firefox subscription account services for storing favorites online. Suggestions from search engines are also toggled off. 
I’ve tried all remaining suggestions on the following pages to get rid of this issue: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions 1st method for clearing a single item didn’t work; 3rd method to clear my browsing history didn’t work.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1213978 I have turned off browser.urlbar.autoFill = false. Toggling this option, at least, got rid of unsolicited suggestions from the worldwide web such as youtubemoneycalculator.com. It’s a partial success!

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1213978 keyword.enabled is set to false, but toggling this won’t make any difference. browser.fixup.alternate.enabled is set to false, but toggling this won’t make any difference.


The only method that makes a difference is to turn off Addres bar suggestions from Favorites (in about:preferences#privacy). But then I don’t get any suggestions at all…

This example merely illustrates the issue with youtube… domain names, it happens with any address that I start typing in the address bar. Peculiarly, addresses that ARE stored in my favorites, do not appear first in the suggested domain names.
Okay, I’ve done my homework!

My conclusion/question: Some (former) favorites are stored in a location that I have no access to. I would like to receive suggestions as to where I can find these. Preferably, I do not want to delete every single one of them one by one.


Bottom line: It would be nice if I had some sort of control over my favorites. The suggestions appear to be totally random. If the most recently or most frequently visited favorites would appear first, that would make sense. Or if the main page would appear first (youtube.com) and not any other subpages. Does anyone know if this is possible and then, how to achieve this?

Lastly: I don’t understand why a browser that claims to be so concerned about my privacy allows for so many unwanted options. Also, it is a nuisance if these options are actually reset with every update Firefox installs. I have the impression that this happens. I did notice that now and then additional search engines are added to my one-click-search engines (about:preferences#search) without my prior notification. How does this comply with Firefox’s privacy concerns?
