Search keywords are a nice power user feature - we should add some fore dev edition.
Do you mean aliases to installed search engines? Or search keywords for bookmarks to e.g. github or stackoverflow?
I mean aliases to installed search engines: http://note.io/1tekkwx

I'm also worried about the discoverability of this feature - maybe screencasts of power user features could be considered to supplement launch.
We have an old desktop bug for this:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387070

This doesn't seem particularly dev-centric, so it seems odd to do this in the dev browser and not in Firefox proper (the concerns that stopped us from doing it seem to apply equally to your case), but I suppose I don't feel strongly.

To be clear - not for the 10th.

Gavin, do you have the concerns from back then somewhere written down? If not, can you "fix" that?
I think the only real concerns are that they will conflict with users' existing bookmark keywords, or will confuse people typing them accidentally. They're also not very discoverable at all.
I don't see a reason to keep this confidential any more.  It also might be invalid as well, not sure...
