The Awesomelist doesn't return a correct result for the typed search criteria.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to reproduce the steps on a fresh profile:
1. Open Fennec App
2. Browse to
3. Wait until the page is completely loaded
4. Open a new tab
5. On URL Bar type www.m
Actual Results:  
The Awesomelist is populated only with the suggestion of the preinstalled search engines: << Search for "www.m" >>. The websites from history which match the search criteria are missing.

Expected Results:  
The Awesomelist is populated with all the sites who beggin with "www.m", in a descend order sort by most access time.

I noticed that if on step 5 I type "" and then I delete "o", the Awesomelist will be populated as expected.

Interestingly, it works fine if you only type 'm' (with no 'www.' prefix). Fixing.
This bug is caused by a change in platform where the "www." prefix is being ignore on autocomplete searches (see bug 461483). This patch special-cases the  "www." prefix in the search optimization done as part of bug 609603.
