When I search with Fennec Aurora (6), the search terms in the URL bar get replaced with the search URL of the provider. IIRC, Fennec Android keeps the search terms in the bar so that I can easily edit them there or search for them with a different engine.
Keeping the search term in the bar is also the same behaviour as Safari.
Darrin, what do you think of this one? Do we want parity with Safari?
I'd love to see this happen. I don't think there will be any objection, especially if we Matthew is willing to take a stab at it. I can provide a mockup if we want to take this forward...
Thanks :darrin. I'll get onto looking at this over the next few days. If you want to provide a mockup sometime I can make sure the UI is designed to be consistent with your requirements.
Should have a WIP branch on GitHub shortly.
Hey Matthew -- still looking at this?
Sorry for my belated reply Brian. Yes, still working on this - should have a fix done in a few days. Pinged you an email offline.
Hi all. Sorry for the lack of action here - I got a bit busy with work-related things. I am still hacking on this bug and will have an update shortly.
