Details

(Whiteboard: [fxsearch])

Reproducible on: Firefox 34.0.5 (20141126041045), Firefox 35.0b5 (20141218174327), Aurora 36.0a2 (2014-12-18), Nightly 37.0a1 (2014-12-18).

Affected platform(s): Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32-bit.

STR:
1. Launch Firefox with a clean profile.
2. In the search bar displayed in the toolbar, type a random search term (e.g. test).
3. Reduce the width of the browser window until the search bar is no longer displayed.
4. Check the Browser Console.

Expected result: The user is able to narrow down the width of the browser and move the search bar into the overflow menu without encountering any issues.

Actual result: Once the search bar is moved into the overflow menu, the previously typed search term disappears and nsSearchSuggestions.js:136 throws the following error:
> TypeError: searchParam is null nsSearchSuggestions.js:136
