Unlike Pale Moon, Basilisk does not show the icon for the current search engine in the quick search (Ctrl+K) box, only a generic search symbol. I presume this is something changed in the Mozilla core code at some point. It does show it after I start typing, but I still find myself frequently not noticing, and searching the wrong engine. The icon was a really useful visual cue. Is there any way to bring it back in Basilisk?
OK, so Classic Theme Restorer add-on has an option to restore the old search box which shows the icon all the time. I wish it was possible to do without resorting to an add-on, but I guess it's what add-ons are for.
Just a thought. I don't know how Classic Theme Restorer works, but you might want to enter about:config and search for "search" to see if you can spot preferences added or changed by Classic Theme Restorer; if so, you may be able to disable and remove the addon and achieve the same effect by entering those preferences directly.
