Using mozregression I tracked this down to bug 1513337. It looks like the focus event listener is added but it never fires when clicking the awesomebar.

:ntim did something change in that bug that you might think triggers this?

I have verified this issue on the latest Nightly 71.0a1 (Build ID: 20191011093010) on Windows 10 x64, Mac 10.14, Ubuntu 16 x64.

  • The “CFR Recommendation” button is correctly displayed in the minimized form after navigating to another website on the same tab

Seems fairly edge case to me, I think this can wait for 71. If you strongly disagree and think the user impact is major, you can let me know.
