Before I can click mousewheel on address bar and start my partial-type to the next site..

alas, now it just puts the marker in the front and I must Ctrl+A to highlight all before continued surf 8-[

On 69, and before, left mouse click focuses the address bar and highlights the URL, is there a reason you don't use that?
As an aside, in Linux, wheel click in almost every app is paste, to enable this in Windows Firefox set middlemouse.paste to true.
The change to mousewheel click could be a bug but it may have been intended, I can't find the bug explaining why they did it if it was intentional. Editing the subdomain of a site (the part at the beginning now that the https is usually hidden) is rarely needed.

Check the value of the Pref, browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll.
Default (in Windows) is true. (Linux may be different.)
