Send Find bar in Firefox back to where it is before Firefox 26, that is at the bottom. Do you know this change? much like to Chrome, from Firefox 26 on wards Findbar will appear on top below the address bar. And on other side, one annoying thing that fixed in this version is this Find toolbar no longer shared between tabs, that means it appears on only page where you want  it to visible for finding content and doesn’t appears when you switch between tabs.

Update: Its Firefox 26 that shows Find bar on top, not Firefox 25.
