One-off searches from about:home are not counted in UITelemetry


(Firefox :: Search, defect, P3)

While implementing bug 1303333, we found that one-off searches originating from about:home or about:newtab are not being counted in UITelemetry.

The SEARCH_COUNT histogram looks correct, meaning the the search itself is counted in general. But it doesn't get it counted in UITelemetry / countableevents / search-oneoff.


- browse to "about:home"
- type something in the search bar at the center of about:home
- wait for the one-off engine list to pop up and click on an engine
- open "about:telemetry" and select "Raw JSON"
- the search will not show in UITelemetry / countableevents / search-oneoff.

This patch should also address the comments from :mak in bug 1303333 comment 24 and bug 1303333 comment 25:

- We should add "abouthome" and "newtab" to KNOWN_ONEOFF_SOURCES in BrowserUsageTelemetry.jsm.
- We don't have a way to get suggestion/one-off data until this bug is fixed. For this reason, the one-off searches counted in bug 1303333 get into the "search_enter" key. Once we fix this bug, we should make sure to no longer count one-offs in "search_enter" and to add proper test coverage for that case.

Moving to p3 because no activity for at least 1 year(s).

UITelemetry and countableevents no longer exist, so I believe this is no longer valid.
