Bug 1812232 found PopupNotifications while the search terms persist would not show properly because they expected elements to be there.

So to address that, we now revert the urlbar anytime a notification is shown. However, that might affect the usage of the feature, so we should compare how often search terms are shown to the user vs. how often we need to revert the urlbar due to a notification being shown.

I think it depends on Bug 1815769, because we don't want to just track if the urlbar was reverted, we want to know specifically that it was because of an impending PopupNotification.

Depends on: 1815769
