We should create a new user event when we hand-off search from Activity Stream to the Awesomebar. It would be triggered from Activity Stream.

This will require a data review.

Hi :chutten, this is a new telemetry ping triggered when users start to search from Activity Stream and the search is handed off to the awesome bar. Here is the documentation for the ping: https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/pull/4662/files#diff-f9d20d6688eef2754298456e5d5b836bR109

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time?

Using the category system of data types on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under?

Category 2, Interaction.

Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off?

Default on for all channels.

Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers?

Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice?

Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data?

No. This collection is permanent.

I have verified that the issue is no longer reproducible on the latest Nightly 66.0a1 (Build ID 20190120213632) on Windows 10 x64, Mac OS 10.13.3, and Arch Linux 4.14. A ping is sent everytime the focus is switched to the Address bar.
ex:

"TELEMETRY PING: {"locale":"en-US","topic":"activity-stream","client_id":"304329fc-285d-40fa-8ed3-ec8a7b3fca56","version":"66.0a1","release_channel":"nightly","addon_version":"20190120213632","user_prefs":59,"session_id":"{d387646b-b83c-4023-860a-271b08ee532e}","page":"about:newtab","event":"SEARCH_HANDOFF","action":"activity_stream_user_event","profile_creation_date":17917,"region":"RO"}")
