Would be great if search suggestions, URLs, etc. could be curated bottom-up when the address bar/Toolbar has been set to the bottom of the mobile browser. Having to reach for a search result at the top of the page undoes the ease of a bottom toolbar.
Hopefully can be taken up for consideration. Apologies if it already has been posted. I couldn't find mention on searching, hence the fresh post.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
We looked at this when we moved the address bar to the bottom. While interesting and sensible from an information hierarchy it goes against where the eye naturally looks for information. Which is the top left for languages that read left to right. We don't have any plans at this time to explore such a change.
@KevinBrosnanI see. Thank you for the response. Hopefully worth a re-look some time in the future then.
This idea is not a fit for us right now, but we will review it again down the road and update the status if needed.
For additional context on the decision, check out @KevinBrosnan's post here in the comment section.
I disagree, if you are using the bottom browser your eye is already there, having to move it from bottom to top is wasteful. I would suggest a "Top Suggestions" bar, showing at max two or three listed (sponsored, curated, associated links) items literally just above the browser bar, with a full search button in the top half, preview and else in the top part of the screen.
I think this idea can be implemented as an optional feature. Then those who like it can enable it for themselves.
