So why not use a version that wasn't awful? I use version 13 and it is fast and smooth, though occasionally I do get the busy script messages you mention. And it has a separate search box - didn't know that had been dropped.
No, they haven't dropped it, it's now in "grid" layout when you expand it vs a straight drop-box, the latter being what I prefer.

I get this ALL the time with Firefox on every machine except the older (32, I think) version that used to be on my older Windows XP laptop. (And no, XP has nothing to do with it, because I also used to get that same error message on my my wife's previous XP desktop.)
I have been running the latest Firefox for years, and I have never had the problems described with it, even in Windows XP. Perhaps you have a bad add-on, faulty RAM or a really slow computer?

(To me, combining the search box and URL box is an awful design.)
What? I'm running the latest Firefox (version 34) right now and the URL and search bars are separate:

Firefox is my default browser and I've never had it crash on me. My system is a Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit, almost 2 years old. I'm using the latest version 34.1.
