How to create a toggle to change this setting: Start searching for text when you start typing

I regularly switch between two Firefox settings:

Search for text when you start typing: checked Search for text when you start typing: unchecked

I use a third-party scripting tool (Macro Express Pro) to automate the process so that a single hotkey toggles between the two settings. My macro looks something like this:

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <F10> // Move focus to the Menu bar Delay: 800 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): t // Tools Delay: 200 milliseconds Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): s // Settings

Delay: 1000 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <SHIFT><ALT>x // Toggle the search setting Delay: 50 milliseconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CONTROL><F4> // Close the setting pane

My macro is a bit unreliable. It works about 80% of the time. I could improve reliability a little by using longer delays, but my preference would be to do this in a more programmatic way, or at minimum, in a more direct way with fewer steps.

Is there a way to toggle this setting, for example, via about:config or by typing something in the address bar? The Firefox hotkey in the Settings pane is SHIFT + ALT + x. Is there a way to force this hotkey to be recognized in a regular Firefox window?
