    I'm trying to add the "Find in this page" bar as a default feature in firefox. (that is: if you are in firefox and go to Edit->Find in this Page it puts a search bar on the bottom of the window that lets you search within the web page. I use it often, and I'd love to turn it on permanently. ) I've searched the (many) firefox tweak pages, but just can't seem to find it. Surely it must be some easy setting in the main firefox tweak pane. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Also, i'd like to do the same to safari as well....

    you can just press "/" to call up the quick search bar?

    or even better, if you goto firefox settings->advanced->accessibility, check "start search when I type", you practically can just type whatever you want once page loaded, and the quick search bar will appear automatically. no press keys, no mouse click, no nothing!

    there are two tweak indeed you can do

    1. make the quick search bar stay there longer
    2. make quick search bar full-featured like standard search bar.
