Everytime when I start Firefox the Search Bar(see URL) maximize.
So that I can't see much Bookmarks in this bar. Only about 1 or 2.
Only when I go to the settings, therefor right clicking on the toolbar, and chose costumize. After closing it without changing anything the Search Bar minimize so that a maximum of bookmarks are show up.
This problem appears at any window size and fullscreen.
I already tried:
Search the problem on google.
Search at the settings.
Trying to reinstall firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open firefox
2.Look at the Bookmarks-toolbar while the search bar is included in it. 
Actual Results:  
The Search bar maximize its size a lot so that most of the bookmarks will be push out of the line.

Expected Results:  
It should only make the search bar so big as its usefull and not so huge that its pushing out the bookmarks.

This may actually be the "Bookmarks collapse when on the same bar as other things" bug 447571.
If you find that the search bar doesn't do this when the bookmarks are on their own bar, please dupe this bug to that.
