Middle clicking an @search Top Site wrongly triggers autoscroll
[Affected versions]: - Nightly v63.0a1, Build ID 20180812220618 [Affected Platforms]: - All Windows - All Mac - All Linux [Steps to reproduce]: 1. Open the browser with a clean new profile. 2. Middle click a @search Top Site. 3. Observe the behavior. [Expected results]: - The @search term is autocompleted in the Address bar. [Actual results]: - The @search term is autocompleted in the Address bar but the autoscroll function is also triggered. [Notes]: - The escape key will no longer dismiss the contents of the Address bar after this. - The issue is reproducible on Linux only with "general.autoScroll" set to true. - Attached a screen recording of the issue.

I have verified that the issue is no longer reproducible in the latest Nightly (63.0a1, Build ID 20180816100035) on Windows 10, Mac 10.13 and Linux x64. Middle clicking a search Top Site no longer triggers the page to autoscroll.
Fix verified on macOS 10.13, Ubuntu 116.04LTS, Windows 10x64 for Firefox 62.0b18.
