The URL autocomplete doesn't complete any of the url in my history.
I assume by "complete" you mean in the input field, not in the results panel. We name that feature autoFill.
urls are autofilled when they start with the string you are typing, and they have a sufficient score.
For example if you are typing "n" and expect https://news.ycombinator.com/ to be autofilled, that is a correct expectation, provided you visit that website often and this is not a new profile (if there's a site starting by "n" with an higher score, you may have to type "ne" or "new"...).
I tried in my profile and it works correctly, even if I disable browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark.
Note that by bookmarking a page you can increase its score, so it's more likely to be autofilled.
Does anything change if you bookmark the page you ar eexpecting to be completed?
Could you please make an example of what you type and which url you expect to be completed?
The only URL that ever autocomplete are URL of popular websites I never visited with the default config.
What does "default config" mean here?

- Reality: the first suggestion is to search for "n" in google (my default search engine), and pressing enter opens this google search. The other suggestions are URLs from my browsing history which have words starting with "N" in their title, even some that don't have an "N" in their URL. https://news.ycombinator.com/ appears fifth, but seemingly only because it has "n" in the title ("Hacker News")
Could you please check you didn't change the value of the browser.urlbar.autoFill pref? It should be set to true.
Also, if I type out "news.ycombinator" in the url bar, the first suggestion will be to visit this non-existent url, with the expected suggestion https://news.ycombinator.com/ being second in the list.
This is bug 1080682, unrelated.
