I think this is close but I'm mildly stuck on getting the test to pass reliably.  It works locally with two magic setTimeout calls but I'm pretty certain there's a better approach, I just don't know what it is.  Dave, can you take a glance at the XXX comments in the test in the attached patch?  If the issue isn't obvious, I can keep digging, but I'm hoping something will leap right out at you...

Also, this flow got overlooked when UX did the original install flows.  We don't currently show any doorhangers for installs from the search page, so I opted to only show the post-install notification for webextensions (i.e., not for legacy add-ons).  Markus, can you confirm this is okay?

For WebExtensions we need to make sure to show the permissions the users is agreeing to.
(if reducing the number of different cases, I think Andy filed a bug to replace this search with a re-direct to an AMO search. That might omit that bug altogether.)

Sorry my question wasn't clear, this patch adds permissions prompts for webextensions installed from the search page.  It also adds post-install notifications, but only for webextensions.  I think we're good for webextensions, the question was about legacy add-ons -- I didn't add any post-install notifications for them.  This maintains the current behavior, but it is different than the other install flows (disco pane, AMO, etc) for legacy add-ons that do show a post-install notification.

If it makes implementation easier this is OK as legacy will not be around for much longer. 
If easy to change, having a similar behavior for every extension would be preferred.

Mossop, the version that you was full of leaks in debug builds.  This version is clean on try:
https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=cdf16a5178f542dd34b63279bb8d2c7cefc149e6
But the changes feel a little gross, mind taking a look again, perhaps there's some way to make it a little neater...

Clicking on “Cancel” button will remove the webextension from the search results list. See screencast: https://www.screencast.com/t/jngZ3muVgd
Is this an intended behavior?

Are there any plans to implement install notifications from about:addons search for legacy add-ons too?

Yeah, I forgot to mention that, its probably worthy of a follow-up bug but I don't think it is high priority.

This was discussed above, see comment 3, comment 7, comment 8.  In short, no.

Thanks. I wasn't sure about the conclusion.
