From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-test10 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001211
BuildID:    2000121112

When the autocomplete in the navigation toolbar learns an address with http://,
it won't present it as an alternative for an address without http://. The
opposite is also true.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make autocomplete learn an address starting with http://
2. Start typing the same address without the leading http://

Actual Results:  It didn't present the URL it learned in step 1 as an alternative

Expected Results:  Munge the URL (i.e. chop the leading http://) and present it
as an alternative. In the opposite case, add a leading http:// and present it as
an alternative.

If the guessing rules say something else (like ftp://) should be used, it should
be used instead of http:// above. Be careful with border cases (if the saved url
starts with "ftp.a" and the user starts typing "http://ftp.a" it shouldn't
match, for instance).

Nope. Bug 51910 is about autocomplete doing too much; this one is about
autocomplete doing too little.

This is a RFE I am going to go ahead and mark this as NEW so someone can decide which one to choose. Too Much too little.

This is probably fixed with one of the earlier patches. Markign fixed so that QA

I have verified it with 2001022808. I guess I have enough access to mark it as
VERIFIED, since I'm the original reporter.

[RFE] is deprecated in favor of severity: enhancement.  They have the same meaning.
Severity: minor → enhancement
