    Under Location Bar settings for fx42, there's a new "Change preferences for search engine suggestions..." link to the Search panel, described in the Address bar autocomplete in Firefox - Search your bookmarks, history and tabs article. We should mention that new option and link to the How can I control what results the location bar shows me? section of the Awesome Bar article for details. We should also either update the Location Bar image or remove the outdated image from the end of the article since the Privacy panel screenshot already shows the same Location Bar settings.

    I see that philipp already has a revision pending for fx44 based on Bug 606655 - Remove "Ask me everytime" cookies option so this should be incorporated.
