Suggestion: Make Find tool stay on, from tab to tab.

I find it annoying that I have the Find tool on, then open another page in a tab and it's off, or navigate away from a page and have the Find box go away. That box isn't very big and in the way, and it would much better to keep that box open ALL THE TIME. Having to press CTRL+F evertime I need it, is painful. Okay, so I'm lazy! But I don't think it would impair the user's ability to view a page. That row it sits in is as high as only one line of text!

How about implementing this, Mozilla? I mean, your browser is the browser of choice. It's superb at viewing images and retrieving image information. It plays Youtubes and other videos flawlessly. It's as fast as Google's Chrome at performing a search across the net. Firefox wrocks! It would only wrock a little more if one could enable this feature and leave it on all the time. I do a lot of research, and finding a phrase on a page at Wikipedia or elsewhere is performed often. So let's allow new tabs to have the tool on if it is already on, and let's leave it on until we purposely turn it off.

Please?

Hello! I love Firefox, especially when I can hide all unwanted distractions. I always want a blank homepage, but this is currently impossible to obtain without completely disabling History. I always want History to exist in the Firefox Menu, but I still want to have a blank homepage. As it currently exists, I'm forced to be distracted by this big, oftentimes useless menu every time I open a new tab. Please enable this ability, it makes no sense as its currently designed.

It use to be after sizing the URL and Search to be even lengths, and then in Customize placing the Reload icon between them, the 2 windows would remain relatively the same length. Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

Separate search engine for private mode missing, no option to search selected text in private mode

In firefox 77 I could choose different search engine for example duckduckgo as default search engine in private mode. In 78.0.1 this setting is missing, no way to search selected text privately or set different search engine for private mode. Only workaround is to go to about:config and enable "browser.search.separatePrivateDefault.ui.enabled". This fixes both problems. Is this still in beta and not officially available or are my settings wrong?

IMHO, the Hamburger menu should be the duplicate of the Menu bar. That way one could gain vertical display space by hiding the Menu bar. After all, the some of the Menu bar options are already duplicated, but not the ones I could use. Why not go all the way and let users gain the extra display space?

Hello, I am using firefox in my laptop running windows 7. There I cannot make it to fullscreen mode. When I try to do that, it looks like the attached image. That strange thing comes in up-right corner, covering the controls, and blocks the whole window going fullscreen. The problem disappears after an update or changing the theme or reinstalling firefox completely. But it starts again after few days. Feeling irritated.
