urlbar domain sugestion.png

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (masking-agent; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
Build ID: 20150916030203

Steps to reproduce:

1) Create a new/empty profile;
2) Disable the suggestion/autocomplete of bookmarked pages on the urlbar, either in the options interface or via adding
user_pref("browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark", false);
to the prefs.js profile config file;
3) Add a new bookmark to Firefox;
4) Start typing the new bookmark URL on the urlbar;


Actual results:

Firefox still suggests and autocompletes the bookmarked domain.
Note: the full URL is not suggested/auto-completed, only the bookmarked URL domain.


Expected results:

The domain of the bookmarked URLS should bot be presented as suggestion and/or  be auto-completed.



Please do note that the bookmarked domain was never visited before said procedure, see attached screenshot, this can also be replicated after cleaning the history of a profile.

*should not be presented

auto-correct seems to also be buggy :3

yes, we have a query that ensures we only autofill bookmarked entries when history is disabled, but we don't have a query that does the opposite.
I think the reasoning was that if you have something bookmarked, it's very likely you'll visit it, so the cases where this bug can happen are rare.

I think to introduce this special case, we first need to simplify the code by removing the autoFill-untyped case, otherwise the code may become too complex.
