Can anyone recommend a Firefox extension that will close the Find Bar when the user clicks anywhere on the page?

Recommendations for gratis or commercial extensions are welcome.

Smaller and simpler extensions are preferred, but all answers are encouraged.

Firefox has a built-in function for that called “Quick Find”. Simply hit / when the browser focus is on any part of the web page that does not allow text input.

The downside of this method is that you can't use the Previous/Next buttons that are present on the full “Find” bar.

Alternatively, you can use the full find bar and hit Esc when done.
