    Information Starting with Firefox Quantum (version 57), you might see your search bar and your address bar combined into a single bar. New installs of Firefox Quantum will see this unified bar.

    If you prefer separate address and search bars, you can restore the separate search bar.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the stand-alone search bar to the toolbar in Firefox Quantum for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    Remove Firefox Search Bar


    I didn't like the Firefox Search Bar. I rarely used it. It takes up valuable real estate that can be used by other ADD-ONS Icons.
    I Just do my searches directly in Bing or Google.

    To remove the Firefox Search Bar (this actually just moves it and stores it away, you can bring it back),

    -Click on the upper right menu icon (three lines).
    -Click CUSTOMIZE
    -Left Click, Hold and Drag the Firefox Search Bar down to the Additional Tools and Features area. It will be saved there in case you want to bring it back.
    -Click EXIT CUSTOMIZE.

    The Firefox Search Bar is now gone and the space can be used to add additional ADD-ONS Icons.

    If you want the Firefox Search Bar back, just drag it back to the original place after clicking CUSTOMIZE.

  3. Remove Firefox Search Bar


    If you're interested in saving screen real estate, and extra toolbar line doesn't do that.

    I drag the search bar to the toolbar menu at the top, to the right of "Help".

    And ... I still cannot figure out how to get rid of that awful Bing search engine.
    I remove it as an option in firefox, change my default to Google,
    and Bing comes bouncing back when firefox is restarted.

    I no longer consider this to be a Windows 10 issue ... it's a firefox issue.

    Anyone know how to stop this behaviour?

    In Firefox 61.0 [latest] I went into Tools, Options, Search and scrolled down to this section and unchecked "Provide search suggestions" plus just below that removed all the Search engines I don't use.
