[Affected versions]:
Nightly 52

[Affected platforms]:
All

[Preconditions]:
 - Visit a site to have a history entry (e.g https://mozillafestival.org/).
 - Have an open tab (e.g. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/).
 - Have a bookmark (e.g https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/). 
  
[Steps to reproduce]:
1. In a new tab type "moz" in the awesomebar.
2. Press DOWN arrow until a one-off has focus (e.g. Bing).
3. Move the mouse over first result from dropdown. 
4. Press DOWN arrow to navigate to a "Switch to tab" URL from the dropdown.
5. Press ENTER.
--> Result:  A switch to tab is performed.
6. Repeat steps 1-3.
7. Press DOWN arrow to navigate to a bookmark or a history URL from the dropdown.
8. Press ENTER. 
--> Result: A search is performed with the one-off that had focus.

[Expected result]:
Pressing ENTER on a "Switch to tab" and bookmarks/history URL should behave the same: OR switching to tab/opening the URL OR performing a search with the one-off that has focus.
 
[Actual result]
Pressing ENTER on a "Switch to tab" URL switches to that tab, while pressing ENTER on a bookmark/history URL results in a search made with the one-off that had focus.

Mass wontfix for bugs affecting firefox 52.
Unassigning myself from non-P1 search bugs for now so I have more time for Photon bugs.

I don't think this is possible anymore now that mouseover doesn't select.
