FireFox Search bar elements too far apart

Previously, when using the Search in FireFox for what is on the page with CTRL +F or CTRL + Gyou get the input box on the bottom left side and very close to that is the Hightlight All Match Case

Now, the Hightlight All Match Case is way far on the bottom right.

On a 23" screen, I feel like I have to type in what I want to find and then mouse for 3 miles to get to Highlight All and Match Case.

I know I can eventually learn to use my ALT + A and ALT + C but being old and with the bad habit of using: CTRL F type stuff mouse to Hightlight All CTRL F type more stuff mouse to Hightlight All

the new location for these is really clutzy.

Is there a way to adjust where the Hightlight All and Match Case is at or will I be forever mousing to use the search in my old fashioned way that I have done for years?

This is the search bar. I circled in red the two positions that are now so far apart compared to how FireFox had been in the past where they use to be next to each other.

Unfortunately, as of the current time, the find bar may not be customized.

Though, if you browse through the Mozilla Add-ons, you may be able to find an extension to allow you customize or replace the Firefox find bar.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
