In RTL UI, the ellipsis for url items in autocomplete should be on the right side.

We didn't fix that in bug 610682.

Web addresses are not in Hebrew, therefore it looks pretty awful when they're on the right side.
I think there should at least be an option to let the user choose whichever way he likes best.

Web addresses can be in hebrew, since domain names can accept non-latin characters nowadays.

There is still no Hebrew TLD (but it is wip), but as far as I know there is Arabic TLD for some countries, which has the same side effect.
Well you can still agree with me that the majority of registered domains (I guess more than 99%), are in latin script. LTR as a default option seems like a "pretty fair conciliation".
