Duplicate of bug: 711096
This looks like a different issue than the one we ended up discussing in bug 711096. That bug was about showing identical matching results, and this bug is about showing results for an empty input box when you tap on it.

I think we should consider showing results for an empty input box to give the user the opportunity to avoid using the keyboard.

Yes - I think I agree with Margaret in Comment 2.

Posted patch patchSplinter Review
This patch prioritizes a validation message over an autocomplete suggestion in the focus case, which is the opposite of how we handle the input case. I did this because that's what XUL fennec does. Also, I think that makes sense, since the form validation message will only be available if an invalid form was submitted, and in that case, the user is probably like "Hm, why was my input wrong?" more than "Hey, give me some suggestions!"
