Obscured thumbnails display

When you click in the Awesomebar, we go to the top sites display with thumbnails, and also pop out the VKB. I believe this is suboptimal - most of the nice 3x3 layout of the thumbnails is invisible and instead you get a 3x1.5 layout. The amount of usable screen real estate is also rather small to make the thumnails useful. I find that they rather sit in the way.

I think we should go directly into the URL only mode, similar as to what happens when you actually start typing.

I found bug 710710 which seems to talk about a similar consideration in a previous design.
