This might be by design but I think case insensitivity would be a conviniece... (not only for for the domain part)
As some URL parts could be case sensitive (path, parameter values etc.), this bug report should be resolved as WONTFIX.
I'm going out on a limb here and marking WONTFIX myself. This would clearly break many many sites.

Reopening. By the HTTP 1.1 specification, 3.2.3 "URI Comparison", <http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2616.txt>: | When comparing two URIs to decide if they match or not, a client | SHOULD use a case-sensitive octet-by-octet comparison of the entire | URIs, with these exceptions: [then is listed four exceptions none of which are relevant here] That clearly states that URIs are case sensitive; thus they should be treated case sensitively when determining whether a link is visited or not. However, I fail to see why the autocomplete dropdown in the URL bar should also be case sensitive; listing matches which are identical except for case would not break any sites. wd, aha, do you disagree?

While that doesn't sound like what the author asked for, I think that's a good idea.
Mudi: Could you agree with change of summary to 'Autocomplete should be case insensitive'?

Sorry for causing confusion. I actually meant the url autocompletion matching (and not matching against memory or disk cache). This autocompletion is a UI convinience, I think the HTTP RFC shouldn't apply.

bug 233229 needs to be fixed first so that best-match-as-you-type still works

Created attachment 205934 [details] [diff] [review] patch I had to make autocomplete autofill fully case insensitive too so that it would notice the match. I'm not sure why it wasn't case insensitive before.

WORKSFORME Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0a1) Gecko/20111215 SeaMonkey/2.8a1 Probably due to using the smart location bar code nowadays.
Really close as WORKSFORME
