As one of the affected Aurora users, I dutifully noted my displeasure
at the time. But as with most UI feedback, I expected it to
immediately fall into the "OMG change" black hole. So I'm pleased to
see the topic being discussed.

(I was able to find a user stylesheet that places the find bar back at
the bottom, eliminating the content-shifting and allowing me to
continue normal use of my browser. But I was astonished by the
user-hostility of the change to the default UI.)
