could you please update to a recent and supported version (see http://www.firefox.com/ ), create a new profile (see http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic%20Troubleshooting#w_8-make-a-new-profile and http://support.mozilla.org/kb/Managing%20profiles for more information), and test this again? 

If you still see this problem in the new profile, please add a comment to this report and tell us your exact version (by updating the "Version" field of this bug report) and your operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Linux, etc.) and provide a concrete testcase (attachment here, or a link to a page where this problem can be seen). 

If the problem still happens but does not happen in the new profile, please enter the address "about:support" in the address bar and attach (using the "Add an attachment" link above) the output for your original profile (not the new profile), as the "Modified Preferences" section could be interesting. 

If the problem does not happen anymore at all, please set the status of this report to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME. Thanks for your help!

Its been awhile sense I filed this bug so I had to think for a second what the problem was when I read it but I remember know.  But I don't remember what operating system I was using at the time.  I had one computer on Windows XP and one that was on Windows Vista that I had upgraded to Windows 7 X86.  Those crashed so i am using a new laptop with Windows 7 X86_64 and sense then been using Mozilla Nightly 15.0a1.  But I am happy to say I have not been having any issues with this search box reappearing in later versions of Mozilla Mindfield that were after the  3.7a6pre ones on my older laptop computers and my current laptop computer.  So it appears the issue got resolved through the updates to the browser.
