Firefox 75, CSS Patterns, Spurious Correlations

Firefox 75 introduced a new address bar, since I don’t keep a browsing history and have it set to searching my bookmarks and open tabs first anyways, I wanted to undo these changes (What’s up with the strange highlight when selected, @mozilla)? Change these values in about:config and restart the browser for them to take effect:

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus = false
browser.urlbar.update1 = false
browser.urlbar.update1.interventions = false
browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips = false

Here’s a nice collection of HTML/CSS patterns with a very attractive UI, made by @nghuuphuoc.


In times of Coronavirus/5G conspiracy theories, I laughed hard at these Spurious Correlations.
