Drew, like in bug 1060845, can you help? Tracking because we are doing a lot on this topic in the 33 release and we want something clean.
mmaslaney, should the form history popup on about:home/newtab be able to be opened by clicking or pressing the up key? For reference, before search suggestions on these pages landed, you could single-click inside these inputs when they were focused to open the form history popup, and you could also press the up key to open it. And in all versions of Firefox including 32 and Nightly, you can press the up key in the main chrome search bar to open its form history popup, but you can't click to open it as far as I can tell.

OS: Windows 7 → All
Hardware: x86_64 → All
Summary: Form history doropdown does not pop up by double click/uparrow key in search field of about:home/about:newtab → Form history dropdown does not pop up by double click/up arrow key in search field of about:home/about:newtab
FYI, Double clicking the input filed of normal web page opens form history drop down.

Opening the popup in these cases is the consistent thing, so let's do that. It should, of course, only show results from history at that point until the user starts typing. The triggers for the popup should be the same as for other form fields.
We don't need to track this separately. We're going to consolidate the implementations individually, which will fix most of these behavior differences. Not a regression, and not major issues, so not tracking-worthy.
What's the status of this bug?
Comment 0 still happens. It shouldn't be too hard to fix, if we want. Note that bug 1171344 changed the implementation of about:home/newtab's search field since this bug was filed.
