1. Create bookmark "mailto:%s" with keyword "m"
2. Type "m" into the location bar.

Result:       Suggestion says:
              The same error appears when I'm trying to use bookmark
              "about:config?filter=%s" with keyword "a".

Expectations: It should say (as I think) "mailto:"

I guess, every protocol is affected, so even if it's fixed for common protocols, we need to ensure that autocomplete suggestion could be displayed for protocols registered by add-on developers.

// And probably more issues appear if you use bookmark "%s:someStaticText" for "dynamic protocol" but even I think that this is very edge case. Yet it may be fixed by bug 1196849
as I said in the other bug, the use case is an unsupported "feature" of keywords. We may evaluate to fix the ui glitch, but it won't block unified complete.
