searches through the awesomebar should not get the "typed" visit bonus


(Firefox :: Address Bar, defect, P2)

Post unification, this is a much bigger deal.

All searches through the unified awesomebar end up getting marked as TYPED, meaning they get a 20x boost and show up disproportionately vs. expectations.  This is because loadURL calls addToUrlbarHistory, which marks everything as typed.   But this will also apply to search URLs, which is probably not the ideal.

This means that I now almost always have search results in my awesomebar, which seems like a major change post-unification.

For now, I'd keep it as a standard visit, but I'd like to be able to weight these independently.
yes, this is pretty much bug 1330343, right?
Now that autofill doesn't depend on typed anymore, we could start fixing the meaning of typed.
