Disable grey urls in Firefox’s address bar

Firefox logo

Firefox 6 and higher support a new feature that will automatically color the domain name and the top level domain black, greying out the rest of the URL.

Since this feature is enabled by default in the latest versions you might want to disable it if you don’t like the way Firefox is displaying the URL in the address bar. If that is the case simply follow the steps below.

browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled (true)
Firefox url formatting color setting enabled

browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled (false)
Firefox url formatting color setting disabled

How to disable Firefox’s url formatting.

  1. Type about:config in your address bar and press enter.
  2. Search for browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled.
  3. Make sure the value is set to false.

The URL in the address bar should now be colored in black only.
