If I type something into the address bar, use the arrow keys to highlight one of the suggestions, delete it (using the Del key on win/linux or shift+backspace on mac), then hit Enter immediately, the URL of the deleted entry is loaded. I would /guess/ whats happening here is that when using the arrow keys to highlight an entry some state for "URL to load" is updated, but when an entry is deleted that URL is not updated to the URL for the item that is now selected. If someone can point me to the relevant code I'd be happy to submit a patch.
Uh, where the "some state" is the address bar itself, of course.
I can't reproduce this.
Please describe what you did, and what happened to the address in the address bar when you deleted an entry from the suggestions.
I misread comment 0, can reproduce it now. Involved code: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/widgets/autocomplete.xml#498 http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/autocomplete/nsAutoCompleteController.cpp#545
Still in FF9, minor bug but annoying during the daily use of the awesome bar. As FF selects/highligths the next URL following the deleted URL, the location bar should display this URL or nothing (blank) if there is no next URL.
An add-on fixes this annoyance. Perhaps someone could turn it into an actual patch.  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bug669129/
I want to work on this bug. Can it be assigned to me?
Still confirmed in FF 18.0.2
Gijs, I CC'd you to this bug, I know you work on location bar, so maybe one day in the future, you'll have cycles and time to work on it. It's a minor bug but annoying sometimes.
rb, I'm assuming you're no longer working on this... please let us know if you are still.
Actually, this bug seems to be gone by now.
No, it's still here in FF37.
would be interesting to retest this and blocked bugs after bug 1236364 is in a nightly.

yep, looks like there's more. Off-hand sounds like we don't update the input field synchronously on a removal.
