How do I revert the search bar to its old appearance?
I'm using Firefox 34, and I can't stand the new search bar. How can I change it back to the old style? I've tried restarting with add-ons disabled, so I know the problem is with Firefox
I can upload pictures to explain better, if needed.
Hi thedude9821, are you using something like the Keyword Search extension?
That makes your address bar search independent of the default search engine, so your search bar can be set to your second-most-used plugin by default.
As for what the fix should be, maybe a checkbox in options which restores the old "default to last used" option would be a convenient solution. Just need somebody to code it over the weekend!!Read this answer in context 2

Nice to see, I am not the only one:
1. who thought his search engines were gone (the-edmeister) 2. whose search habits are incompatible with the new search bar (BikeHelmet)
@cor-el: I don't mind breaking stuff I never used before, if it is the only way to make the stuff I use regulary work properly again.
The chosen solution here does not actually answer the original question. However, there is a very good answer which appeared in the following similar thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1033968?esab=a&as=aaq

In about:config, toggle the pref browser.search.showOneOffButtons
I love Firefox, but lately they are making the interfare worse and worse. Thanks for the help.
