How do you turn off this 'new' feature' Just discovered it today, and searches on the web about turning it off don't seem to work.

To see what I am asking: in the address/urlbar on a new tab press the 'space bar' will show all the Quick Actions presently available.
In the address/urlbar enter the letter 'b' you get quick actions for 'bookmarks. Pressing the letter 'r' gives 'refresh' and 'restart'.

Refresh to me is dangerous unless you know what's about to happen.

I added the new 'prefs' mentions here: https://www.ghacks.net/2022/07/19/mozil ... dress-bar/ but they don't seem to work, and restarted the browser after adding and made no difference.

Seems like browser.urlbar.shortcuts.quickactions = false disables the ">" shortcut, while browser.urlbar.suggest.quickactions = false disables the buttons in the dropdown and autocompletion.

You can do that but you can also just go to Search Shortcuts in settings and Actions is at the bottom of the list. Just uncheck it if it is checked.

Which will only disable the shortcut, but not the feature altogether. That's bug 1783452.
