We should filter the @engine list as you type. So that if I type:
"@" - I see a list of @engine suggestions
"@a" - I see the list of @engine suggestions filtered down to just @amazon

This will helpful in the future if we have more of these shortcuts, some beginning with the same character(s). So for example, I might type:
"@" - I see a list of @engine suggestions
"@a" - I see the list of @engine suggestions filtered down to @airbnb, @aliexpress and @amazon
Priority: -- → P1

This doesn't seem super important right now since there's no way to trigger it at the moment?  We don't currently have any shortcuts that start with the same letters.  (Except for @ddg and @duckduckgo, but obviously they use the same engine.)

I know you mentioned it would be helpful in the future in comment 0, so mostly this is just my reasoning for lowering the P1 priority that I gave it earlier, which doesn't seem right.  And certainly once bug 1502920 is implemented we'd have another reason to do this.
Priority: P1 → P3

This seems to be working for me
