I know this might be a little nitpicky but I use FF for about 1/2 of my browsing and I often have to use the "Find in this page" feature, which opens up the little text box at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that it is ALWAYS hidden by my OS tab bar (linux) and I've yet to find a solution that works consistently (auto hide isnt' an option, so bottom "panel"/bar is always there). The thing with Firefox is the find box is always hidden underneath this so I have to resize the browser every time I use this.

I know you can move stuff around to the R/L of the address bar and I put the "find" button on the top next to the address bar, but it still opens the text box at the bottom.

Is there a way to change the coding somehow deep in the browser that could allow me to change the location of this text box?

Or could there even be a addon created to do this (I mean it would probably have to be newly created for this), is that something that addons could do?

THANK YOU! This looks like it will do what is needed but I haven't tried it yet though. I really appreciate your help!
