UX Mockups: https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/URNEIGMWKB9#/screens
Mostly working prototype (verified by UX): https://rlr.github.io/newtab-search-scroll-to-fixed/dist/index.html

Some Notes:
* The search box is narrower on wide layout now. It doesn't change width between wide and narrow layouts anymore.
* There is now more space around the search box.
** On shorter windows (<700px), the space is less than on taller windows
* After scrolling up a little, the search box becomes fixed to the top like a header for the page.
** On shorter windows (<700px), we just keep scrolling. We don't convert it to fixed.

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 when scrolling the "Search Box", it becomes fixed to the top of the page and becomes smaller.
