User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506)
Build Identifier: Mozilla 2.0.0.x

add the ability to autocomplete/autosuggest the URL being typed, even if the user never visited that page.
e.g. suppose a user never visited mozilla.org: when the user starts typing the address - for example "moz" - firefox should connect to a "domain list" (dunno if google or alexa allow this via their APIs) and display all sites beginning/containing "moz" in order of relevance/popularity.
in other words, implement something like google autosuggest but for URLs.

Reproducible: Always
