Browsing with Firefox from the Ubuntu is very strange, especially the search bar. Is it the only option, or I can create something different?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If you prefer, you don't need to use the search text field. If you just type in the address bar what you are looking for and press enter, if it doesn't appear to be an URL firefox will search using the default search engine (should be google, but you can customize it).
If you want to adjust the look and feel of firefox, just right click on a toolbar and select customize. For instance, you can remove the search field, if you prefer.
If you need any function that firefox does not come with, check out http://addons.mozilla.org - you can customize firefox in many ways, and it should be possible to get it very close to the look and feel you prefer.
If you don't like firefox, there are many alternative browsers available in the Ubuntu software repositories. One of them is chromium-browser, which is Google Chrome, without the non-free components. Another option is the Gnome Webbrowser, which is named epiphany-browser. Further alternatives are Midori, rekonq, konqueror, arora, dooble,... If you add a custom software repository, you can also easily install Opera Web Browser.
In case you have bad eyes, use a Braille terminal, or simply prefer a clean and high contrast display of web pages, there are text based browsers available, the most prominent ones are lynx, elinks and links. Graphical browsers which are small and fast, but have limited functionality are chimera2, netsurf and dillo.
