This is a request for enhancement to restore some lost functionality from the deleted preference browser.urlbar.default.behavior (see bug 530209 - Firefox 36).

Typing @ manually restricts the autocomplete match behavior to URLs but a preference would be more convenient for users who never want to match in titles.
