searching from about:tor brings me to duckduckgo but my query is discarded

Go to about:tor and in the text box in the middle of the window, type foo and then either hit enter or click the magnifying glass.

It brings me to duckduckgo, but it doesn't carry the search query along with it -- I have to do my search query again once I'm at duckduckgo.

Things work fine from a blank tab, or from the little search box in the upper right.

It seems that this problem is occurs because about:tor is handled by the chrome process but POST data is lost when the tab is transitioned to the content process (which is why this is an e10s-related issue). See:

Absent a fix for that Firefox bug, this problem should disappear if we fix #18913 (and now I think I understand the meaning of ticket:18913#comment:4).
