I cannot stand the current search bar i have several search plugins with the same icon and it is just ungodly slower and less useful. How can i get the old drop down list back like it was before. We have no classic theme restorer anymore. This has been bugging me ever since. I mean it sucks donkey you know what.

Can anyone help me find an add-on that puts the functionality back so stuff works like normal and not this horrible mess that it is.

Forget about using an extension to do mods such as what the Classic Theme Restorer handled; userChrome.css is what is needed.

Check out this video, then see if this suits your needs:

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.
