Here is the procedure for FF--link also contains instructions for IE, Opera & Google Chrome as well as some other useful tweaks:


To remove the Google Everything Bar in Firefox, you will need to edit a UserContent.css file to add customized code. Follow these steps:

1. Go to the following folder:
Windows XP - \Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[randomstring.default]\chrome\
Windows Vista or Windows 7 - \Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[randomstring.default]\chrome\
OSX - ~/Library/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/[profile folder]/chrome or ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[profile folder]/chrome

2. Rename the existing UserContent-example.css file to UserContent.css, or create a new text document with that name.
3. Open the file with Notepad or any text editor.
4. At the bottom of the file, copy and paste the following text into the document exactly as shown:

/* Remove Google Everything Bar*/
@-moz-document url-prefix(http://www.google)
{ div#leftnav { display: none !important; }
#center_col { margin-left: 0px !important; } }
5. Save the document and close it.

Close all instances of Firefox and then restart it, and when you next launch a Google search, on the search results page you should see the familiar (old) appearance for search results.
