The main URL textfield of Firefox has autocompletion whilst typing.
I believe this would be a handy option when users enter an exception url in the
address field of cookies exceptions.
Especially since most of these URLs will be sites were the user just went, but
got some trouble viewing a page as cookies were needed to correctly view/access
the page.

The field is the Tools\Options\Privacy\Cookies\Exceptions in the 'Address
website' field.

I'm using Deer Park Alpha 2

Still not implemented in FF 1.5

Shouldn't the component be 'Location Bar and Autocomplete'?

In addition to autocomplete, it would be nice if the exception dialog simply defaulted to whatever domain's currently in the location bar.
