Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060817 Firefox/2.0b2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060817 Firefox/2.0b2

control-n maps to the down arrow key (control-p -> up) for the location/search bar and forms in safari, camino and opera.

firefox has tab (shift-tab) for the url bar but nothing handy for form autocomplete suggestions.

if someone could point out where this is specified in the code i wouldn't mind just fixing this for my own use.

sorry if this should have filed under core and/or location bar and autocomplete.

Reproducible: Always

i figured out how to do this with the keyconfig extension (thanks to firemacs.xpi):

var controller = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/autocomplete/controller;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIAutoCompleteController);
controller.handleKeyNavigation(KeyEvent.DOM_VK_DOWN);

leaving as new, though it no longer concerns me.
