Details

In bug 1508388, we landed the search hand-off feature enabled behind a pref. It should stay enabled in Nightly and Beta, but we need to disable it for Release (Firefox 66).
The pref is: "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar"
Assignee: nobody → rrosario
Iteration: --- → 66.3 - Jan 7 - 20
Priority: -- → P1

We want to do this towards the end of the 66 Beta cycle.

Iteration: 66.3 - Jan 7 - 20 → 67.4 - Mar 11 - 17

In bug 1516044, we made search hand-off enabled only in Nightly.
