Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up the awesome bar and click on "see all bookmarks"
2. Click on the manage button
3. Click on the user field multiple times in different areas

Actual Results:
The row highlights each time and it gets annoying when I make a mistake inputting a field for my bookmark and tapping/mousedown'ing on that entry.

Expected Results:
In manage mode with the row already selected, the user doesn't need highlighting because they've already chosen it and are making changes to it. This can also be applied to the addons manager when users are selecting different input fields for options of an installed addon.

Can we not highlight the row when a tap is on an input field?  On buttons too, for that matter.

Attached patch Cheat (obsolete) — Splinter Review
As discussed on IRC, it doesn't really make sense to highlight a row when clicking on it would do absolutely nothing, as is the case for a selected row with input fields shown.  So we can cheat on this issue if you agree.

We should think about richlistitems in general, like the ones used for addons and downloads. Both of those "open" when selected too.

Yes - definitely -- I think people will encounter this a lot more in add-ons than in editing bookmarks.

Think this covers downloads, extensions, and bookmarks.

This is obvious enough that even if its not mentioned in our testsuite, it'll be annoying to the point that users will file a bug right away.
