[Affected versions]: - 62.0b20, 63.0a1(build id: 20180823220048) [Affected platforms]: - win 10x64, ubuntu 16.04LTS, macOS 10.13 [Steps to reproduce]: 1. Launch Firefox; 2. Access the newtab page; 3. Click on the button for google or amazon search; 4. Copy the generated string from the address bar "@google "; 5. Paste it anywhere; [Expected result]: - the exact string is pasted [Actual result]: - "http://google/" is pasted [Regression range]: - will check if it's a regression asap [Additional notes]: - attached screen recording with the issue; - the link for google is not working either;
Copying without the space pastes the string properly.
The same behaviour is found for the other @search shortcuts (ex: amazon, bing, duckduckgo, ebay, yandex, twitter)
Having trouble reproducing on the latest nightly. Tried on both Mac and Windows.
Still reproducible with current nightly 63.0a1 (2018-08-28), checked over win10. It's really important to copy the space after the string as well, otherwise it will not happen. ex: [@google ] leads to the issue, while [@google] is fine.
I can also replicate this on Mac. It doesn't happen if you manually type in "@google " but does if you click through from the search shortcut.
When you type it manually, we end up here in the copy code because this.valueIsTyped is true: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/703546ab6d0cb643028a1ab4fda997b38f38a2e6/browser/base/content/urlbarBindings.xml#1321 But when you click a tile, we end up farther down that method and fix up the value, which is why you end up with a weird pseudo URL. I'm not sure what the best fix is. Maybe urlbar.search() should just set valueIsTyped to true. Is this a high priority for Activity Stream?
Priority: -- → P3
`urlbar.search` needs to simulate the user's typing. Fire an input event, as we do elsewhere to simulate it.

Issue is no longer reproducible on 64.0a1 (2018-09-21) over macOS 10.13.6, Ubuntu 16.04, win10x64.
Drew, this bug is a P1, does it make sense to uplift it to 63 or can it ride the trains to 64? Thanks
Yes, this seems OK to uplift. Will request
Approval Request Comment [Feature/Bug causing the regression]: Search shortcut tiles on the new tab page -- bug 1480505 added the blue highlight in the urlbar that this bug is about, and bug 1479806 is the main meta bug for the project [User impact if declined]: The original bug (bug 1480505) landed in 62, and this bug landed in 64. So if declined, users will have to wait for two releases before this bug is fixed. [Is this code covered by automated tests?]: Yes [Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]: Yes [Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: See comment 0 [List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]: None [Is the change risky?]: Low risk [Why is the change risky/not risky?]: The patch mainly touches a single urlbar function, urlbar.search(), which is only used by the search tiles on the newtab page [String changes made/needed]: None
