I have verified this on Windows 10 x64, Arch Linux and Mac 10.13.3 with the latest version of "Firefox Nightly" (63.0a1 - Build ID 20180813220525) installed and I can confirm that the "Search Bar" height is now "48px", exactly like in the mock-ups (https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/U7N6JJGZ4RB#/screens/311914742_Complete).

Nice improvement. The search box on the New Tab Page forms an alternative to the user setting DuckDuckGo, Google, Bing ... as his/her homepage. Therefore, I think implementing the "Search Box Hand Off" (as seen in the mock-ups) would only confuse the user. Please refrain from implementing this part (no. 6).
