Search in bookmarks title for the autocomplete results


(Firefox :: Address Bar, enhancement, P1)




Firefox 3 beta3


(Reporter: sylvain.pasche, Unassigned)



Right now, the autocomplete results is matching bookmark tags, document titles and document urls. However the result do not take the bookmark title into account.

This is not an issue when using the default bookmark title, because it is filled by the document title which will be matched in the autocomplete results. However, when changing the bookmark name (for instance, if the document has no title or a meaningless one), that would be great to see it appear in the autocomplete results.

Steps to reproduce:
1) open
2) bookmark the page (<ctrl>-d), and set a name to "foobar"
3) type "foobar" in the address bar
I see the url matching that bookmark
actual result:
no match

This would be related to bug 399664. In this situation, the overridden bookmark title should be displayed instead if the document one.

Requesting blocking; this seems like a big gap in the current implementation. I can currently search my bookmarks by title in the Bookmarks Sidebar and Places Organizer, why not in the location bar? (which would be much more convenient :)

I support both Sylvain's request and Andrew's note. In my opinion, this feature has been done right in Epiphany browser (, where typing part of the bookmark's title of tag suggests the list of available bookmarks.

I would like to note, that search by bookmark's label (tag) is already working.

Bug 278747 has recently been morphed (its new summary is 'Include bookmarks url's and titles in auto-complete url feature'); it has blocking flag and is targeted for M11; so to avoid confusion I think this bug should be duped to that one.
un-assigning seth's places/autocomplete bugs.
