As of the last few days, typing in the awesomebar, hitting the down arrow, and then hitting enter, goes to the wrong site.

For example:

Type in 'a'.
FF will autocomplete the url to 'apple.com', but display the awesomebar dropdown, in which perhaps 'spongebob.com' appears in the list.  Hit the down arrow to 'spongebob.com', hit enter, and FF goes to 'apple.com' instead.

If there is no url autocomplete, as when there are spaces in what is typed in the awesomebar, this doesn't happen.

I see the same issue in the last UX build.
Are you on latest nightly? the builds released on saturday and (I think) sunday had this bug.
UX may have been build from one of those, so that doesn't matter much.
