Thanks. It works --- but it still doesn't get me what I really want.
While the white space of the address bar can be reduced, it seems to only
increase the amount of white space in the search bar -- nothing gained
actually. If I enable the "search from the address bar" function, I can't
find a way to get rid of the dedicated search bar on the right or how to use
that space for other functions such as additional "favorites".
I have for some time been using the Quero toolbar which allows me the
freedom to move the "stop", "back", "home" and "refresh" buttons to the top
right hand side of my desktop and to combine the address/search functions in
one bar but I'm still stuck with all of that miserable white space as that
combined bar is not adjustable when using Quero. Viktor Krammer of Quero
doesn't seem to have any solution to that problem.

It is.... hover the mouse over the gap between the Address bar Stop button
(if aligned to the right of) and you will see the E/W cursor appear. Press
the left mouse button and drag it to change the size of the Search Box and
Address edit box.
