Similar to issue 1610718 (please read through if you can. Marco suggested I open this bug in comment 32), please consider/investigate prioritizing domains above subdomains for Firefox's URL bar autofill (beyond the obvious ones like 'www' or 'm.'). Example: when I type "m", "mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox" autofills. For me, that is not what I want or expect and doesn't seem as logical or 'right'. I want URL's such as max.com to autofill when I type "m". Another example: when I type "e", "en.wikipedia.org/" autofills. I want ebay.com to autofill, not en.wikipedia.org.

I think the localized case is an obvious one where we can do better. en.wikipedia.org is a clear example indeed.

Other cases like "mail." require a bit more attention cause there's risk of breaking users who got used to type m to exactly go to "mail"... we should improve the autofill adaptive system for those cases I think.
