Various test directories were set to have browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar=false as part of bug 1516272 export.

Generally these tests are making sure we send the appropriate telemetry when searching from about:home, but with search handoff, there will not be searches from the content page anymore, so perhaps the tests should just be removed?

Also, this probably should only happen when it's decided that handoffToAwesomebar=true is the only way (i.e., pref is removed and assumed true).
Iteration: --- → 67.1 - Jan 28 - Feb 10
Priority: -- → P2

We should hold off on this until when hand-off is enabled for everybody. At the earliest, that's late in the 66 as release cycle (68 nightly).

Iteration: 67.1 - Jan 28 - Feb 10 → 68.4 - Apr 29 - May 12
Priority: P2 → P1
Type: enhancement → task

This work will only happen when Search Handoff is ready to go live.

It's in the backlog (P3) until that happens.
