Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160823121617

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch Firefox using desktop or menu shortcut
2. Open "Options" from the Firefox menu
3. Select the "Search" sub menu to modify Keywords
4. Set the Keyword for Google search engine to "GOO"
5. Open a new tab and use the Keyword Search (e.g GOO test) in the Awesome Bar
6. Open another new tab and attempt to use the the Keyword Search again (e.g GOO second test)


Actual results:

Instead of completing a second Keyword search, the character case of "GOO" is altered to "GOo". All future Keyword searches will result in this change of case.

I was able to reproduce this on Windows 7, Windows 10, and OSX in both standard and developer editions.


Expected results:

Expected a normal Keyword search as this issue did not exist in previous software versions.
