Details

When using One-Off searches in about:home or about:newtab, if you happen to hover a suggestion before clicking a one-off button, the suggestion text is used instead of the typed query to perform the search.

STR
- Navigate to about:home
- Type something in the search field and wait for the suggestions to pop up
- Hover (do not click!) on a suggestion
- Click on any one-off engine
- The engine will search using the suggestion text (expected: search using the user query)

I actually thought we were doing the opposite, thus if you select a one-off and then click on a suggestion we'd use the suggestion.
Is the behavior different from the searchbar?

Mh, nope. I can't seem to reproduce the other way around that you mentioned.

Yes, it works correctly in the searchbar.
