I removed the esarch bar, since I can get the same exact functionality through the url bar (also called awsome bar, I believe). I use multiple search engines but select the non-default ones with keywords.

The only thing that I am missing is the possibility to access the "Manage Search Engines" dialogue box. The only to geto to it there seems to be the drop-down menu from the search bar icon. Is there any way to access that dialogue without having to re-add (and afterwords re-hide) the search bar?

No. The plan was to add the option to manage search engines to the Add-ons Manager, but no telling when that will happen.

You can add search engines as bookmarks, which would allow you to easily manage them from either the Library or the Bookmarks Sidebar. Right-click a search field on a web page and choose Add a Keyword for this Search.
