I like the search suggestions feature. I also like how installed Search Engines are listed as buttons in the search pop-down area, so I can type a search term then click a specific search engine.
What I don't like is the fact that this row of buttons is on the bottom of this area, not the top.
A very common occurrence is that I type something, the suggestions haven't loaded yet, I try to click on one of the Search Engine buttons, but then at the last second the suggestions appear, shift all the buttons away, and I end up clicking on some irrelevant google search term instead of what I wanted.
A related occurrence is that I've typed something, there are suggestions, but by the time I try to click a Search Engine button, the suggestions change (e.g. realising that e.g. there are no suggestions now that I typed an extra word or two) and the buttons suddenly move back up, causing me to click something irrelevant in the web page underneath.
Is it possible to change it so that this list of Search Engine buttons can be made to not keep moving around (as the search suggestions field is not of fixed height), e.g. by fixing it to the top of this area rather than the bottom? If it's already possible, I can't figure out where the option would be (and I did check, I also looked in about:config for terms like "search" and "suggestion" and found nothing promising). Please advise.
