Naming URL bar variables and resources

Hi all,

I just landed a change on fig to consolidate the naming of URL bar things
in our code [1].

Currently on mozilla-central, we use the terms AwesomeBar/AddressBar/UrlBar
somewhat randomly, but we're taking advantage of the about:home rewrite to
clean things up. In informal discussion we decided that "URL bar" is the
best term for variables, since "awesome bar" and "address bar" are more
appropriate as user-facing terms.

So, in the future, use "URL bar" in your code.

I also filed a separate bug [2] to kill off AwesomeBar/AwesomeBarTabs,
since they're not used in our new BrowserToolbar/HomePager architecture.
Once those classes and their related files go away, we shouldn't have any
reference to anything "Awesome" in our code.

Best,
Margaret
