Search suggestions are not the same in the URL bar and in the Search toolbar
Reproducible with Firefox 43.0 (20151208100201), Latest Nightly 45.0a1 Affected platforms: Windows 10 x86, Ubuntu 13.10 x64 and Mac OS X 10.11.1 Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch Firefox with a clean profile. 2. Go to about:preferences#search and set Bing as default search engine. 3. Type a search term in the location bar (e.g. yahoo) and click Yes on the suggestions notification bar. 4. Type the same search term in the search toolbar. Expected results: Search suggestions are the same. Actual: 'yahoo.com' is displayed only in the suggestions from the search toolbar. Additional notes: 1. This issue is reproducible only if Bing, eBay and Amazon.com are set as default search engine. 2. Please see the attached screenshot. 3. Not sure if this is a regression. We will check as soon as possible.
If I got this correctly, the search bar returns a "yahoo.com" entry, while the urlbar doesn't show it. This is not a regression, but a design decision. We didn't yet figure out how to show to the user where urls come from when they come from a search engine, thus we decided for now to filter out url-looking things from the urlbar search suggestions.
OK, good to know. Not a blocker for 43 release. Kev this sounds like your area, n-i to you to make sure you agree.
Way too late, but yes, this was agreed upon.
