Description

2 years ago
>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
STR_1:
1. Open http://example.org in a new tab. Close the tab
2. Open new tab, type "your ex" in urlbar
3. Press Ctrl+Left (or click before letter "e")
4. Press Ctrl+Delete, then press Delete key (or delete text "your " in any other way I guess)
5. Press Down key, then Up key

AR:  Url bar is now filled with the entire autocomplete url
ER:  No autofill. Url bar should have only the originally typed text "ex"

This terrible unifiedcomplete thing appeared (bug 1066358) [1].
Then the pref was flipped in bug 1168811 [2], and the bug became user-visible.

Note:  Thanks for broken + useless unifiedcomplete "feature" that breaks useful stuff (see my reports)
