Description

6 months ago
For a visual explanation, please see Verdi's first bulleted mockup over at https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/4POCDI07U9A#/screens/322966230_Seach_Bar_Changes_For_63

If possible, we'd try and make sure that whenever a search engine alias is entered and nothing else _yet_, to show only the first, default action 'Search with foo.com'.
What's the schedule/priority of this?
