    I explain you how to center something in simple terms. 

    For example suppose a div contains your form like this:

    <div class="container">
      <div class="centerDiv">
        // your form

    Note that the div centerDiv contains the form and you will be centering this div so that the form will be at the center of container div.

    For this you will be adding this CSS to your stylesheet:

    .centerDiv {
      width: 200px;
      margin: auto;

    Notice the margin: auto given to the centerDiv and this will do the work.

    More info on reference tutorial here.

    So you need to do this change only:

    <div class="mb-menu-search mb-mn" style="display:none !important;width: 200px; margin: auto;">

    And I hope it will do your work.
