    Has anyone got an easy about:config fix to stop the address bar in Firefox 83 enlarging? Thanks.

    Not anymore. There was an about:config fix but it doesn't work now.

    I don't get the point of the stupid wide address bar. What is the point?

    Funny that you ask now. that mod is present since several builds now (v77) and it was not altered until now.

    While the enlarged URL bar seems pretty pointless to me, I have no problems with it either.

    Yeah, but I could easily fix it before. I might go back to Chrome lol.

    I've really tried to accept it, but it pushes into the bookmarks bar making it awkward for me sometimes to click on a bookmark icon. Plus, I just don't like it.

    my style did not change after v77 (current v85 nightly)
    Code:
    #urlbar[breakout][breakout-extend] {
      top: calc((var(--urlbar-toolbar-height) - var(--urlbar-height)) / 2) !important;
      left: 0 !important;
      width: 100% !important;
    }
    
    #urlbar[breakout][breakout-extend] > #urlbar-input-container {
      height: var(--urlbar-height) !important;
      padding-block: 0 !important;
      padding-inline: 0 !important;
    }
    
    #urlbar[breakout][breakout-extend][breakout-extend-animate] > #urlbar-background {
      animation-name: none !important;
    }
    
    #urlbar[breakout][breakout-extend] > #urlbar-background {
      box-shadow: none !important;
    }
    
    added only
    Code:
    #urlbar:not(.megabar) .search-one-offs
    {display: none !important;}
    
    but i might remember a pref which turned it off before v77. from v76
    Code:
    "browser.urlbar.update1", false

    Yeah I like the original style a bit better as well. I have my bookmark bar below the URL bar, so if I click on the URL bar and the suggestions window drops down, I can't click on bookmark icons anyway :argh:

    It's almost like Mozilla are determined to drive away potential users. o_O

    Code:

    browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests

    browser.urlbar.maxRichResults

    I don't know why. Here's my Firefox address bar behaviour:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdwkSHUz5zs

    I have also previously applied about:config preferences (re-created if missing)

    Code:
    Change browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests to True
    Change browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to False
    
    If using custom.css

    Code:
    toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true
    
    By default, the preference above is set to false and after Firefox 69 or 70 that preference has to be set to true for Userchrome.css customizations to work.

    EDIT: Unlinked video URL to make it non clickable.

    EDIT 2: Can't figure out how to unlink it.

    Moderator. Thanks for unlinking.

    Figured it out for next time.
    Code:
