Is it possible to move the find toolbar to the top in FF44?

Thank you.

Excellent! Exactly what I was looking for. I didn't even know of userstyles.org before. Thank you for pointing it out.

Those do not work...when I type in the box, I can't see any letters being typed even though they are there.

On top of that, the box is on the far right. I want it on the left.

Plus I prefer it didn't change the way the bar looks.

Just moved to under the tabs.

Here's a quick fix to having it at top. Not a real solution as I would like the complete functionality of it under the URL bar as how it works on the bottom, like it butts between the scrollbar & addon bar @ the bottom, but on top, have it butt between w/e toolbar "urlbar" and scrollbar, and like it to move with other toolbars as if alt button was hit for menubar, findbar would move along with all the other toolbars as menubar expanded.

Temp solution.
Code: Select all
#FindToolbar {
  position: fixed !important;
  border: 0px solid transparent;
  border-top: none;
  border-radius: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
  background: inherit;
  top:48px;
  left:2px;
  background-position: 78% -40px;
  }

/* MOVE FINDBAR TO THE TOP */
#FindToolbar{background:grey!important;color:black!important;font-weight:bold!important;position:fixed!important;top:52px!important;z-index:9!important;background:-moz-dialog!important}
#browser-bottombox{position:fixed!important;bottom:5px!important}

That's what I found to work for me. Change the # 52px to move the bar up or down. even though it's not the full bar, It's starting to grow on me.

Nice code, but it breaks my Status-4-Evar add-on.

What exactly does it break? I use the same add on as a replacement for fusion.

It squishes the whole status bar to the left, leaving it only about one quarter of it's length. I notice that SeaMonkey 2.1b3 has the Find Bar at the top and it looks and functions well. I messed around with the provided code and I can get it to work fine with Status-4-Evar but the bar ends up with a transparent background. If I add code to give it a background, the background works, but it always freezes the query window making the Find Bar inoperable. I finally had to give up without a fix.

hmmm...When I just enable the code it removes my stausbar completely. Since I don't use it, I never noticed. I'll see if I can narrow it down.
