Attached image screenshot
As Anna said above, when hardware keyboard is out, suggestions popup is not displayed at all. 
If I will type an username used at step 3, when I tap on password field, it will be auto filled. Performing this steps, I've noticed an error in console which is displayed at least 5-10 times:

Error: this._anchorRect is null
