WFM in Fx51.0 & 52.0a2 (2017-01-22) on Win10.


Can you check your Browser Console (not Web Console) when the problem occurred? There may be some errors thrown.

I can reproduce it with the new RDM.

STR:
1) Open about:home
2) Switch to RDM
3) Type any keyword into the search bar

Result: search suggestions are not displayed (no dropdown list), search button doesn't work.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

Thanks for filing!

My initial reaction is that this is pretty low priority, since I would imagine most RDM users will open RDM from a content page instead of about:home.

If we learn that many people are affected by this issue, we can reevaluate.

Since it seems low priority, I'm clearing the regression tracking and tracking flags.
