You can no longer revert back to old Search bar interface in Firefox. With Firefox 34, Mozilla introduced a new search interface or so called one click searches UI, for which, underneath the search suggestions for your search term, you’ll see an array of search engine buttons.
These buttons allow user to find a search term directly on a specific site quickly and easily. Till now, Mozilla allowed to disable one click Searches UI in Firefox browser through an about:config preference browser.search.showOneOffButtons, now the old search UI, its code and the preference have been fully removed from Nigthly, which is at version 43.
