How to Disable the Invasive Search Bar in Mozilla Firefox 34

The people at Mozilla Firefox continue not to get the basic fact that many users do not want invasive browser popups or messages of any kind disturbing their work.

The newly introduced search box confusion is just another example of veritable incompetents at work who ignore user wishes.

THE USER's WORK should be in the foreground,

not what some adolescent programmer wants!!!!!

AskVG.com explains how to get rid of the abomination quickly.

Use Method 2 there by changing your about:config settings via the address bar.

Change

browser.search.showOneOffButtons user set boolean true

to

browser.search.showOneOffButtons user set boolean false

and you remove the nonsense thought up by someone with time on their hands.

The search bar now works as before.
