As a user, I expect links that I open from an app using custom tabs will share Form AutoComplete from the full Firefox for Android browser for better form completion

Per discussion in the sprint meeting this week (2/20), we considered this is done 
since the custom tab uses the same as full browser regarding input text.

Hello,
Test scenario: 1.perform some searches on Bugzilla and remember some logins on Facebook in Nightly 
2. send the pages to gmail and open using custom tab
3. tap on search field to bring up the old searches.
Actual results: nothing happens. There is no search saved.

Is something that I missed during this test? If not this means that this issue isn't fixed.

Hi Julian, 
Could you please help us check the comment2 if anything missing in the test scenario ?

Thank you!

i will leave this to Julian to comment but I would expect form history to work in custom tabs similar to how it would work as if you open up Firefox again to perform the same steps

Just quick guess: it didn't work due to other bug in native level. (such as "cannot paste string on long-clicking").

I use latest nightly to test on Google search page, it works now.

Tested again with some devices and here is the behavior:

Nexus 9 (Android 7.1.1)
- on google.com - the search history wasn't displayed on CustomTab
- facebook - saved logins wasn't displayed on CustomTab  
- bugzilla.org - search history for bugs wasn't displayed either

HTC Desire 820 (Android 6.0.1)
- on google.com - the search history was displayed on CustomTab
- facebook - saved logins wasn't displayed only a list empty/white and if I tapped random, the search criteria was pasted into search field on CustomTab  
- bugzilla.org - search history for bugs wasn't displayed either

Here is an example for a random search made with HTC for better understanding: https://youtu.be/pTnXHJpqv48.
