Not that I know of and the current Nightly build (79.0a1) still has the search bar in the Customize palette available.

Where did you read this ?

I don't believe I read anywhere I believe heard on the YouTube Channel Switched to Linux. But either I'm glad to hear that Firefox still has the search bar because it would be big mistake to remove it, it be kinda like that time Mozilla removed the option to email link.

BTW I'm having issues signing into my support Mozilla account about half the time it says account not active if you believe this is an error please report to an admin.

In that case it is probably best to contact Kiki via a PM.

Actually when I said half the the time I should've said over half the time. And thanks I sent Kiki a PM.

Hmm, I don't remember that. There's still an optional icon for it when you go into Customize.

Actually you can still add the search bar to the toolbar via "Options/Preferences -> Search: Add search bar in toolbar", so you only need to use customize if you want to a non default position.
