User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040210 Firefox/0.8 As it is now, autocomplete always start from the beginning of the previously typed words. That means that if you don't remember the start of an address, only parts of it or the end ("I know it was something like '.../xul/rules.html'"), you will not be able to utilize the autocomplete feature. If you *only* have lets say 'www.mozilla.org' and 'www.bugzilla.org' stored and you type 'zilla' in the location field nothing will show. It would be nice if all typed words containing 'zilla' would be shown, as is done when using Find As You Type. The drop-down could display all results starting with the typed string and after them the results containing the string. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Summary: Use same approach as in 'Find As You Type' for autocomplete → Autocomplete should match all parts of strings, not just beginning
sounds very similar to bug #186136 is the type of feature you are looking for? if so please close this bug and vote for that one.
