We reset the URL every time the user starts editing it: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/1828937da9493b2cd54862b9c520b2ba5c7db92b/mobile/android/base/java/org/mozilla/gecko/toolbar/BrowserToolbar.java#777
I'm searching through the open bugs trying to find one that describes an issue I see regularly. The scenario is that I've entered the wrong URL and want to fix it. STR: * Type food.com * Firefox for Android starts to load food.com * Fix the URL and type foo.com and submit (at this point food.com is still loading in the background) Expected result: * As soon as I submit foo.com this is what is displayed. Actual result: * Firefox for Android reverts the URL to food.com and seems to still be trying to load that URL, a few seconds later the URL switches it to foo.com and properly loads foo.com
