Steps:

1. I have http://logbot.glob.com.au/?c=mozilla%23developers http://logbot.glob.com.au/?c=mozilla%23jsapi in history
2. Type "log" (w/o quote)
3. Press down arrow key to choose http://logbot.glob.com.au/?c=mozilla#jsapi
4. Press backspace key to delete "i"

Result:

autocompletes to ">> lologbot.glob.com.au/?c=mozilla#jsapi"

hmm, bug 775072 doesn't fix this bug. I still can reproduce on latest m-c nightly.

what is "latest", the 24th August ones?
ok, I can reproduce comment 0, _while the ac panel is still open_ with the entry selected, pressing backspace completes wrongly.

fwiw, this is "autocomplete-in-the-middle" (by the presence of >>), the bug may lay in the controller.cpp code.
that said, we should likely not complete in the middle, in this case, the % is probably confusing the comparison (we are likely comparing escaped to unescaped to figure out if we should do common autocomplete or in the middle autocomplete).
