(Whiteboard: [search] [ux] p=2 s=it-30c-29a-28b.3 [qa-])

UX must decide on placement and heuristics around when to show a row in awesomebar results that makes explicit how to search the default search provider.

The prototype is now finished:
http://phlsa.github.io/ff-search-prompt

Here's a few things to notice:

- The list entry that prompts to search uses a different layout (one line). That helps to set it apart from the rest of the list.
- That entry is automatically selected once you start typing into the URL bar.
- Once the text in the URL bar has URL formatting, the autoselected entry changes as well.
- We definitely need better heuristics for when a string is a URL and when its a search term. »localhost« for example should be treated as a URL while »node.js« ideally shouldn't.
