Hi Mark,

Intuitively I guess pressing up/down to navigate on suggestion list and pressing enter to behave as the equivalent of mouse click are desirable, though those aren't defined on UX spec.  But I'm not sure what's the expected result for pressing left/right key in form autofill. Do you have any idea about this?
If no straight decision, I think we can have a further and comprehensive discussion about keyboard accessibility first, and then back to this bug to judge whether this is valid or not.

Intuitively I think left/right arrow key shouldn't do anything in the dropdown list. Left/right key should probably navigate the cursor inside the input field. If users want to clear form, they should press down and then press enter.
