I love using the search icons in the awesome bar. Unfortunately, when I want to search for things that I've already got recorded history on, the history options in Firefox Suggest override the visibility of the search icons (which are below Firefox Suggest, at the very bottom).
Moving the search icons to the top permanently (above Firefox Suggest) would resolve this.

Yeah, makes sense for me. Also make the paddings smaller and maaaaaybe use the chips instead of icons:
