How do I get the old search toolbar back?

Yesterday, I'm assuming Firefox updated without asking or telling me, and now the way that my search toolbar functions is totally different. I don't like it. I want to be able to use the old search bar, where you can click the arrow by the magnifying glass logo to chose from a very simple list of search engines to set the search bar to. I don't want to pick one default and then chose a different one every time I want to use a different one. Sometimes I need to look a lot of things in a row up on Wikipedia, and it's a lot easier to just set the search bar to Wikipedia once and continue searching there, without having to go into preferences and change my default, or without having to chose Wikipedia every single time I search. This is ridiculous, the search bar wasn't broken, and I don't see any reason why I should have to chose between using a crappy inferior version of a very simple straightforward toolbar or going back to the old version and being vulnerable to security threats. I also don't want the top of my screen loaded up with an add-on toolbar. I just want Firefox to function the way it functioned yesterday. Please tell me there is a way to change it back to the way it was yesterday without putting myself at risk.

You can revert to the previous Search Bar scheme like this.
Open up '''about:config''' ''(typed in the Location Bar)''
Right-click and toggle this preference to '''''false'''''
'''browser.search.showOneOffButtons'''
Then restart Firefox.
