User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b12) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b12
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b12) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b12

I've just found this annoying behavior of Firefox 4 beta 12 where the Search Bar disappears after switching to another Tab. I just want it to remain open like in previous Firefox versions so I can search in other Tabs too for what I'm looking for. The actual behavior is very annoying since the Search Bar disappears every time you switch the Tab.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Search Bar with Ctrl+F or mouse gestures
2. Switch to another Tab

Actual Results:  
Search Bar disappears for no reason

Expected Results:  
Search Bar should not disappear when you switch to another Tab

Sad thing is that Firefox is becoming worse with each passing day.
I think it needs another 10 Betas before final release to fix all these BUGS.

FYI, that was not a "bug" but intentionally changed. Didn't get rave reviews afterwards, though. (lol)
