[Affected versions]:
Firefox 59.0.2
Firefox 60.0b14
Firefox 61.0a1

[Affected platforms]:
Ubuntu 14.04 x64
Windows 10 x64
macOS 10.15

[Steps to reproduce]:
1.Launch Firefox.
2.Customize toolbar by drag and drop in overflow menu more than 15 item the including the Search Bar item.  
3.Enter a search term in the Search Bar without pressing Enter.
4.Click on another item from overflow menu (e.g. Forget or History).

[Expected result]:
The Search drop down menu remains in it's position (doesn't jump to the top) and another search can be performed.

[Actual result]:
The drop down menu from search jump to the top, under the address bar and stay there, another search is not allowed and the overflow menu it's still enabled in the background. This happens when the search drop down almost cover the overflow menu.
The video doesn't play. ("Video can't be played because the file is corrupt")

Does this not affect Ubuntu 16.***, only Ubuntu 14.*** ? If so, I'm pretty tempted to suggest wontfix.

I have tested this using 73.0b7 on Windows and macOS 10.15, seems that reproducible on these platforms too.
[Actual result]:
Clicking on "Forget" or "History" (these menus must positioned before the "Search menu" item) the search suggestion drop down appear for a second at the left side of the browser window.
