I am using Firefox (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009101601 Firefox/3.0.15 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)). I want to be able to clear the search terms in the search box when I close a tab. I am using Google as my search provider.

Is this possible with Firefox about:config or do I have to write a plugin?

It doesn't clear the search box when you close a tab, but the Clear Search add-on will clear it instantly after you make your search.
