Good Afternoon,

Clear the (separate) search box or at least stop it from selecting whatever is in there ?

Now that the useful addon Clear Inputs no longer works ...

I managed to stop the URL bar from becoming selected, but still have to find a way to clear it and do the same for the search bar.

For the searchbar, I just do Ctrl + K and start typing the new search term and it overwrites anything already there. To clear it, you could do Ctrl + K, then Delete.

Btw addressbar (urlbar) is Ctrl + L
