User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0
Build ID: 20170628075643

Steps to reproduce:

Open a new tab, focus the URL bar, and type "bbc".

(with default settings of browser.urlbar.autoFill = false and browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed = false)


Actual results:

URL autocompletes to "bbc.co.uk", while the first result in the dropdown is "bbcnews.com", and is selected. (See attached screenshot.) This creates confusion for what will happen when I hit Enter.

If I want to navigate to "bbc.co.uk", I have to further type ".", or right-arrow to the end of the autocompleted URL.


Expected results:

If the URL autocompletes, it should match the first result in the dropdown, or else the first result in the dropdown should not be selected by default.
