Attached video awesomebar2.mp4
There are some subtle animation tweaks that we are going to for Photon to the Awesomebar. Highlighting of the hovered row, animating the identity block to a search glass, and animating the size of the popup if it shrinks or expands with changes to the contents.

See the attached MP4 for a demo of what it should look like.
Whiteboard: [photon]
At 0m8s we can see "" and "". This is exactly the cool stuff we want <3. (neutral encryption: a hidden "https://" on at the beginning of the video)
There may be an inconsistency: Currently your example shows an implemented bug 1158191. I thought bug 1002724 would come as a first step.
What would happen if I would click on " Visit" or had typed in www.from-a-billboard.example? I would expect a connection over https here. As an interim solution you could show a grey http at the beginning. "http://[...] Visit" Maybe with a pref "network.https.tryfirst" in the context of to change it to the currently shown behavior?
Good catch! This bug is only about the animation seen in the video. I'm not don't know who is/isn't working on or if these other things you may see in the video are being worked on right now.

Just a quick note here: there's been a lot that has been changing (and still is) with regards to search, so this should definitely go through another round of design/sanity check before we start to build it.
