User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 Build ID: 20160426232238 Steps to reproduce: 1. New Tab (Ctrl-T). 2. Paste the URL https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN in the location bar, either with middle click (specific to Linux) or Ctrl-V. Actual results: Firefox proposes to complete the URL to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4585, which is automatically selected if I type [Enter]. Expected results: Firefox should not propose to complete the URL, so that it is possible to open the URL with a paste then [Enter]. Autocompletion makes sense when typing, not much when pasting.
Change the browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed to true in about:config if it is not https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/places/nsPlacesAutoComplete.js#84 // Whether to search only typed entries. const kBrowserUrlbarAutofillTypedPref = "autoFill.typed";
It is already set to true. If I toggle it to false, I get the same behavior, and if I toggle it to true again, I still get the same behavior.
Also note that this problem is reproducible in safe mode (firefox -safe-mode).
This is also reproducible with a fresh profile: 1. firefox -no-remote -safe-mode -ProfileManager 2. Create a new profile. 3. Open https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-525 4. New Tab. 5. Paste https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN
Makes sense, it's possible ends up being a dupe if this is already tracked.
I've quickly looked at bugs blocking bug 1071461, and found the very similar bug 776408. However this bug mentions a paste delay, which would IMHO be a very bad idea (bug 776408 comment 8 agrees). I think that 1. Bug 776408 should be retitled so that the paste delay is no longer mentioned (and with more information so that it can more easily be found with a search). 2. This bug should be marked as a duplicate of bug 776408.
