I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.

@namespace url(""); /* only needed once */

/* Searchbar History */
#searchbar .autocomplete-history-dropmarker {
 -moz-binding: url("chrome://global/content/bindings/autocomplete.xml#history-dropmarker");
 display:-moz-box !important;
 -moz-appearance: toolbarbutton-dropdown !important;
