Recent versions of Firefox have introduced a separate find box for each tab.

Is there any config variable in about:config or any addon to disable tab level search in Firefox or use a common find text box for all tabs?

Since Firefox 25, the FindBar was made independent for each tab. This addon reverts the FindBar to classic/global behavior.
