    Default Firefox 89 and omnibox

    Firefox ver 89.0 has introduced the 'omnibox' don't quite like it. It combines the good old Google search box with the URL address bar.

    Is there a way to disable it?

    Try:

    about:config

    browser.proton.enabled

    Double-click it and it will instantly apply.

    And discussion here:

    about:config

    Then search for:

    handoffToAwesomebar

    and change the setting to false.

    and

    about:config toggle `browser.proton.enabled` to false it will revert back to the old Photon style.

    Ok, revert to the older one, and wait till the theme/extension fixes turn up then. They will, always do.
