Autocomplete best match as you type should be default checked Current default behavior for 4.x is autocomplete best match, not sure why this is not checked by default.
It was a UE decision to do it this way a long time ago. Also, the selection when using this pref flashes and is annoying.

I don't see any flashes and it is hardly annoying (using v1.6). Autocomplete Best Match is a hidden gem that is used by default in browsers like IE6 and Safari, except that it's much better implemented in Mozilla. Is there any reason to keep this only for those in the know? Please consider reopening this bug, Prog.
