I can click, switch to keyboard, Home, ctrl-Del (two hands) and then type, or triple-click (if it takes, it's tricky). Someone showed me how to aliase google to 'g', so a new query is now easier if I just open a new tab, which presents a blank location bar, and type "g keywords"; this is so convenient, I find the search edit box is just wasted real-estate. Perhaps the design intention is that subsequent searches would be similar to the previous, and so it keeps the last search current instead of a pull-down history like the location bar -- this introduces two different data entry paradigms in edit boxes side by side, and that too seems odd. Besides, maybe I misunderstand the intention, but if I want to modify my search query, the google results page already contains the edit box, so at best the Firefox editbox copy of the query is redundant. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Expected Results: IMHO, after each query, the query string should go into a pull-down history stack and the search window should be reset.
