Getting rid of the search box in Firefox.

So you know the search box that's part of Firefox's naigation toolbar
that can be accessed by tabbing from the address bar or by pressing
ctrl+K? I want to get rid of it as I don't use it and it frequently
gets in the way of me using Orca's navigational hotkeys(usually on a
freshly loaded page) by taking focus seemingly at random. I've tried
googling, but all I can find there suggests using the
view>toolbars>customize option from the menus, which seems muse and
visually oriented to the point of being useless for someone who uses a
keyboard exclusively and relies on a screen reader.

Does anyone know an about:config option I could change to get rid of
this search box or some other accessible way of getting rid of it?
