Right now there are two ways to close the Find Bar in Firefox: click the "x" button or set the focus to the Find Bar text input and press Esc. I'm looking for a way to close Find Bar with Esc key when it's not focused

Well you could press ctrl+F to get focus, but maybe you meant programmatically.

I'm aware of that, but I'd like to close it only with Esc, not setting focus beforehand – alterionisto Oct 14 '13 at 8:11
