Details

(Whiteboard: [bug][fxsearch])

Reproducible on:
* Release 38.0.6 (20150605094246)
* Beta 39.0b6 (20150615125213)
* Aurora 40.0a2 (2015-06-16)
* Nightly 41.0a1 (2015-06-16)

Affected platforms:
Windows 8.1 (x64), Mac OS X 10.9.5, Ubuntu 14.04 (x86)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox.
2. Access about:home or about:newtab.
3. Right-click the search input field and select "Add a Keyword for this Search...".

Expected result:
* The option should not be available for these fields in the first place.
* Selecting the option has no effect.

Actual result:
Selecting "Add a Keyword for this Search..." causes the following error to get thrown in the Browser Console from BrowserUtils.jsm:70:0
> NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI: Component returned failure code: 0x804b000a
> (NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI) [nsIIOService2.newURI]

Additional notes:
* This is either an old regression or an issue affecting the search fields from about:home and about:newtab since day one. I traced it back to Nightly 29.0a1 (2014-01-02).
