Details

When search suggestion list is populated, if i go to a second tab, and go back to the first tab, the list is not shown.

Tested on Windows10 64bit and Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit.

FF Beta 74.b8 affected
FF Nightly 75.0a1 not affected
FF Release 73.0.1 affected

Steps to reproduce

  1. set browser.urlbar.update1 in about:Config to true
  2. Open a new tab and type something like "mozi" : Search suggestion list is shown
  3. open a new tab and type something else "cat" : Search suggestions list is shown
  4. Go to tab #1
  5. Go to tab #2

Actual result:
search suggestion list is not visible in tab#1 and tab#2

Expected result
Search suggestion list should remain visible when you go back to tab1 or tab2

Component: Search → Address Bar

I think what you see is expected.
75 is the only version with the new design enabled, and that's where we reopen the view.
74b8 doesn't have the new design enabled, as well as 73.

Even if you're setting browser.urlbar.update1 pref, that's not enough, the new design requires multiple preferences, and additionally the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus pref (that is the one you're looking for).
