When I search for content on a page and hit Ctrl+F, I'd like the search bar to be displayed at the top...

is there a way to get that done in firefox?

i have spent time with the userchrome.css but no luck so far...
i added the following line in the css file

#FindToolbar { -moz-box-direction: reverse;}

but this only moves it to the right -- bottom; i want it on top left

This has been wanted since 2004, I guess.

One person seems to have come up with something here.

In the userchrome.css
/* Reverse Browser Elements */
#main-window {
  -moz-box-direction: reverse !important;
}

/* Order elements */
#navigator-toolbox {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 4 !important;
}

#FindToolbar {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
}

hbox#browser {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}

statusbar {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
}
