1. Get "GMX" search plugin
2. set it as search engine in Firefox
3. type something in the search field.

Actual results:
You see no search suggestions dropdown.

Expected results:
You see search suggestions in dropdown.

- Google search shows suggestions in Firefox Linux.
- GMX suggestions work in Firefox Mac.
- Loading the GMX suggestions URL manually in curl or Firefox Linux
  browser window works.
- Transfer-Encoding: chunked seems broken on Linux, see bug 567527.
  That seems to be the cause for this bug.

So, this bug is just a placeholder in the Firefox Product, which should be resolved by solving the Core bug.
Filing anyways for tracking, and in case chunked wasn't the reason after all.

Ben, is that only the case for the first search? I can see something similar here when running Mozmill tests. The searchsuggestions test always fail when I run it because no suggestions dropdown is shown. But when I blur the search bar and refocus again, a search shows up the search suggestions.

Henrik, as I say above, it works for me with Google, and I believe to have tracked down the reason for this bug in bug 567527.
Alright. So I have filed a new bug 571379 for my specific issue.
