I think this has just gotten much worse on Nightly in the last week or perhaps two (not sure which as I don’t update every day): I never noticed any problem before (but I don’t often use Firefox when in tablet mode), but now when I return to desktop mode I am observing the address bar results dropdown staying open persistently (!) on all windows and never closing again until I kill the browser (though just now when trying it out, opening a result in a new tab with Alt+Enter did proceed to close it, but I’m pretty sure I tried that yesterday and the day before when I encountered this situation, unsuccessfully).

I would say this is now an important bug which substantially harms users that may easily encounter it. Most of the time I’m in a fairly bandwidth-constrained environment, so I can’t currently help with finding a regression window.

Welcome to the club. Though it is a slightly different bug than the one reported here. What you see is probably the one Marco referred to above. That other bug is at P2 but maybe it should get more attention...
