Annoyingly so. Ubuntu 16.04, Firefox 56 64bit. Used to be able to uncheck the search settings and its gone. However, it shows up no matter what settings are there. Again, it takes up a whole inch from the top of the page and its' not needed. Or reposition the search to the bottom of the page. Really, why even have the option when you can type the search term in the address bar.
