Typing in the addressbar/searchbox from the history or bookmarks screen doesn't filter or highlight results like it does from "Top Sites". Having the search box not work like the Top Sites tab makes for a confusing experience which led me to file bug 808917 and bug 808916 for separate filtering support.
This is by design and is consistent with Firefox Mobile.
(In reply to Ben Francis [:benfrancis] from comment #1) > This is by design and is consistent with Firefox Mobile. Actually, it does show a filtered awesomescreen on Firefox Mobile and the design simply says: "When the user begins typing, the highlighted text is cleared and the Top Sites/Bookmarks/History tabs disappear. As he types, a list of relevant results filtered by frecency is displayed."  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ygwfxk6chpshxdj/wj9SyPP909/Apps/Browser/R1_AwesomeScreen_v4.pdf (Page 2)
Oh sorry, I misunderstood your bug report. I thought this was somehow a meta bug of the other two. Yes, you should get the same awesomescreen results regardless of which tab you start typing from (Top Sites, Bookmarks or History). I think this may be a regression.
Milestoning for C2 (deadline of 12/10), as this meets the criteria of "known P2 bugs found before or during C1".
