[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: UX regression wor keyword search resuls. The search parameter should be case sensitive.

The problem occurs with newly created profile.

2. Assign keyword "g" to Google search engine.
3. Type "g LALALA" in location bar and hit [Enter]

Actual Results:
Google search results shows "lalala" in search fields in the page

Expected Results:
The search parameter should be case sensitive.
Google search results shows "LALALA" in search fields in the page.

it may be the same problem as bug 1310737.
Regardless I can add a test for this there.
