In the Find Bar (Ctrl+F) of the Proton redesign of Firefox, the close
"x" has been moved from the right end to the left end.

How does a user put it back where it belongs.

Interesting question! It's always annoyed me that the X was so far
from the search-argument entry field, so - to me - this sounds
like a big improvement!

It is, but retraining my muscle memory hasn't kicked in yet.

So much is changing, I thought I would get the whiners a head start on
fixes that they can save for wherever they land on Monday, and when the
redesign is released. 😉

fwiw (and if you see this before the closing)

I use the Esc key to close the search bar.
If it's not active, a quick Ctrl+f followed by Esc (all left hand!)
nukes it.

I'm primarily a mouse user, but do use Ctrl+F to open the Find Bar.

Thanks for the tip!
