Posted image request-cookie.png
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_12_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/61.0.3163.100 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Regular browsing, typing in queries in address bar with query suggestions on.


Actual results:

1. Search engine as Google. 
2. While typing queries in the url bar with query suggestions option on (which is the default)
3. Each keypress then sends queries to https://www.google.com/complete/search?client=firefox&q=<query> with cookie that was set on google.com




Expected results:

Calls from query suggestions, should not carry cookies.

This is not a problem in Private mode, because there is no call to query suggestions API.
Did not check for other search providers.

There is a privacy/utility trade off here that needs to be acknowledged. I discussed this with product but we haven't reached a decision yet.
