screenshot 1 - Suggestions list is unrelated to the string in location bar.png

STR:   (Win7_64, Nightly 45, 32bit, ID 20151102030241, new profile)
1. Open "about:about" (w/o quotes) in a new tab
2. Select all text in urlbar, type "about:" (w/o quotes), press Enter to load "about:" page.
3. Select all text in urlbar, type "bugzill"
 [suggestions list should display at least 1 item, because you visited this page with bug description]
4. Press Alt+Left    [to navigate back to "about:about" page. There's "about:about" in urlbar]
5. Press "Right" key [to hide suggestions list. There's "about:about" in urlbar]
6. Press "Down" key

Result:       Suggestions list is unrelated to the string in location bar
Expectations: Suggestions list should display items related to "about:about" if any

I haven't searched for dupes so marking it [dupeme]
those complicate steps don't look needed, just visit 2 pages in the same tab, CTRL+L, type something that has results and press ALT+LEFT
The url is replaced but the ac popup is not closed.
Sounds like an unhandled edge case, we should close the autocomplete popup in case of navigation...
