When I go to a site to login, the saved login window no longer has the option of the highlighted hovering over the accounts for that site and they added text that says "from this website" which I find so unnecessary and takes up space. Pointless.

Is there an option in about:config that I can revert back to the old way of 70?

Here is a pic:

I get a light gray background for mouse hovering (and a vibrant blue background for arrow-down-selection). This is on Windows 10. Perhaps it's a Windows theme difference?

That is very interesting. Next year I'll upgrade to Windows 10.

For arrow-down selection it does show a vibrant blue background for hovering. But for mouse nothing. Very bland.

I wish they get rid of the text which expanded the logins window.

See also this pref on the about:config page:
signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup

After you toggled it, presumably to 'false', did you restart Fx?

Yes I did. But I'm not seeing any type of change. May I ask what the option is suppose to change?

Dunno, my comment was just regarding any about:config changes ...

(Allegedly) It restores the previous behaviour...
