Attached image flicker-amazon.gif
[Environment:]

Ubuntu 18.04, Mac 10.14.6, Windows 10
85.0 2021-01-18
86.0 2021-02-17
87.0a1 2021-02-18

[Steps:]
  1. Either with @amazon search-shortcut or with @amazon default engine enter a composit 2 words search term like "test test" with a small delay betwen each word input.
[Actual Result:]

There is a noticeble flicker with the search suggestions pannel, when returning amazon suggestions.

[Expected Result:]

Address bar search suggestion experience for amazon should be on par with the rest of the search engines experience.

[Note:]

It might be the case that this is related to the suggestions services and not necesarily a problem in the address bar.

Is this a regression? We changed the muxer recently and lots of other work is going on, so it would be very helpful to know.

I see now that you said 85 is affected, so that probably rules out a recent regression, but it would still be good to know whether it's a regression at all.

From what I can tell, we haven't regressed this recently, at least not in the 85-87 interval, unless there was some external resources that only affected amazon search suggestions. (if there were, I have little idea how to isolate builds with and without)

I'll go deeper down the version lane and double check if there's anything regressing here or not.

Not that I know of, and I can't think of a reason a change on Amazon's side would cause flicker when typing a space since we trim the search string before fetching suggestions.

Thanks for checking.

QA Whiteboard: [qa-regression-triage]

I think we can exclude the regression question mark, if anything it has slightly improved from 78. It does seem like @amazon suggestions perform some sort of reflow in the given scenario, which causes the perceived flicker.

Reproducible on:
78.7.1esr 20210204185103
78.0a1 20200514094044
