Extra RTL style for search-bar auto-completion
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110905 Firefox/9.0a1 Build ID: 20110905040204 Steps to reproduce: Hi, sometimes my Firefox shows auto completion of search-bar in RTL. I can not reproduce that always (or preform a testcase for it) but this serious because I saw this behavior also in other computer (but unfortunately, just sometimes!). I attached what I see sometimes in Firefox. Bug 649840 have relation to this bug, specially this comment https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=649840#c9 I think. Thanks!
Hmm, your search button looks weird (it has text on it, and no icon. Can you try to reproduce this bug in safe mode? <http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe%20Mode>

Because I am using nightly-ux instead of standard version of Firefox, but I saw this problem on other systems outside of my home! :) (of-course, with standard version of Firefox) Sorry, I have not more information about this because it is not enough reproducible and I don't know why sometimes I see that! :)
Anas, is this something that you would like to work on?
Sure. I'll try if I can reproduce it first.
The bug is available till now but I don't how to reproduce it always.
I quite often experience this bug as well on stock Firefox on Ubuntu. This has been happening for a while, possibly since Firefox 4. I have not been able to figure out the steps to reproduce it, but my initial guess is that these could be contributing factors: (1) conducting a search in an RTL language – I routinely search in Hebrew, (2) and/or having one of the BiDi preferences different from the default – I have bidi.browser.ui, bidi.edit.caret_movement_style (set to 0), and bidi.edit.delete_immediately all modified. ebraminio, do you have any of those factors?
Hi, 1) Yes 2) bidi.browser.ui and bidi.edit.delete_immediately but I am not sure about second, where I saw that on my friend Firefox that I don't think he modified that preferences. Thanks
You may won't believe but I saw two or three day ago on recent Firefox on ArchLinux without any configuration (I don't use Firefox as my default browser so I didn't change any Firefox setting)
Proof! I saw it first time on Awesome WM so it is not related to KDE. I don't even use Firefox synching or any manual modification on about:config. Only way I think it could be reproduced is surfing RTL pages like Persian wikipedia or umm, I don't know :)
I even see it in another two PC today.
With help from Ebrahim I managed to reproduce it consistently. 1. Use Firefox with LTR user interface, for example English. 2. Use this data URL: data:text/html, <html dir="rtl"><body><form><input type="text" name="text1" value="" autocomplete="on"/></form></body></html> 3. Write "asdf" in the input box. 4. Press Enter. 5. Click the input box twice to see the auto-completion of "asdf". 6. Write "asdf" in the search bar. What I see: the auto-suggestions are on the right side. What I expect: the auto-suggestions are supposed to be on the left side.
This is still available even on latest UX version.
Good news, this no longer exists somehow; probably due some rewrite done on search bar autocomplete popup.
