Could you please show a screenshot of the page section you want to block?

This rule definitely works - I tested it in Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer;

If you're still seeing the search box, make sure your browser cache is cleared. If you're still seeing the search box after clearing the browser cache, perhaps something like security software (e.g. anti-virus) or a browser extension is causing HTTPS filtering to fail?

You're using the Chrome browser extension? If so disable all other extensions and try again with the first filter rule I posted (not the second as it won't work with the browser extensions).

I was talking about your statement "i type it all in hit the little tick next to it then it all jsut dissappears "
And with search bar I meant the one in user filter at the top.

That rule doesn't work if you're using the browser extension for Chrome. Just use this, it works fine here;

Code:
twitter.com###global-nav-search

The code Boo has posted should work, if when you restart the browser or machine and the search bar is visible on twitter then you need to check to see if the code is still in adguard (click the adguard icon > adguard settings > check your user filters) if the code is still there and so is the twitter search bar then you need to try disabling all your other browser extensions to see one of them is conflicting with adguard.

I tried boo's code in Firefox with sandboxie on and all seemed to work fine. Of cause i had to find a random twitter page as i dont use it myself.
