Since updating TB to latest version a Quick Filter Bar is now under the address bar. What is it & how do I get rid of it? Please help.

From what version of Thunderbird did you update to 8.0?
There is no "address bar" in a standard Thunderbird user interface, unless you are talking about in the composition window. Do you mean the quick search is below the toolbar?

View -> Toolbars, uncheck Quick Filter Toolbar.

It seems that the quick filter bar is the default and thus it keeps reappearing.
How can I arrange things so that it is only set when using
View => Toolbars?
