You can set keyword.disabled = false on the about:config page to prevent using the location bar for searches. You can still initiate a search via '@'.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. On the warning page, you can click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.

In fact, i have tried about a dozen tips offered by various people, on different websites, and none of those could accomplish this, seemingly, simple task: 'navigate back to the CURRENT search bar'.

But, i discovered a workaround ! It is very clunky; however, it does the job and avoids the mouse.

Press 'Tab' four times and press 'right-arrow'. You will find your cursor has moved to the end of the text in 'the CURRENT search bar'.
