View/Toolbars/Customize

Drag and drop the search bar into the pop up box.

the "search here" box is a problem with adware on your pc. remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc) in firefox > addons > extensions. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and also different tool like the free version of malwarebytes.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware

for the other issue mentioned see: Firefox says it's just updated every time it starts - how to fix
