My example assumes your form autocomplete history includes an entry for the word "cat".

STR:
1. Load any page with a text input form. I like using the Firefox Mobile Support page.
2. Type "c"
3. See "c|"
4. Select autocomplete entry "cat"
5. See "cat |"
6. Type "z"

AR: See "cz|at"
ER: See "cat z|"
Depends on: 769520
My fix for bug 769520 fixes this problem, but I can't resolve this bug until the autocomplete popup is re-enabled by bug 764193.

Reopening because of the backout of bug 769250.

Even though bug 769520 was backed out, this testcase still works correctly with Nightly 18.0a1 (2012-09-10).

Does it happen in 15.0.1, 16.0 Beta 3 and Aurora 17?
Now that the bug 769520 backout has rolled out to all channels and the Google Play store, I retested this bug:

* Firefox 15.0.1 = N/A because 15' form autocomplete feature is disabled (to avoid some bugs)
* Beta 16.0b3 = works for me
* Aurora 17.a2 (2012-09-19) = works for me
* Nightly 18.0a1 (2012-09-19) = works for me
