I don't think it's a very relevant bug, but, when you have a big quantity of history and booksmarks, every time you type something in the adress bar, it search again, and the address bar text field get very choppy.

I think it can be improved by checking if the letter entered it's in the end or the begining of the address, example:

The user types:
"I Love Firefox and Hate Internet Explorer"
And the search throw, for example, 5 results

Then the user keeps typing:
"I Love Firefox and Hate Internet Explorer a"
And the search throw 0 results

So, after that, stop searching if it add another letter, because it's irrelevant, will not search anithing...

I hope you understand my **** english xD

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a huge history or booksmarks
2. Don't have a supercomputer
3. Type a large string in the address bar
Actual Results:  
The address bar get choppy

Expected Results:  
It shouldn't get choppy, I guess
