I've gotta complain about this one , although i dont want to, because its sad to see the efforts of the moz hackers being ridiculed . but seriously, this new autocomplete/dropdown list is annoying as hell. typing in bug in the url bar with the old autocomplete would do just that, it would autocomplete my entry with 'bugzilla.mozilla.org'.. now it just gives me a drop down list (no completion within the urlbar itself) with a plethora of links, none of which seems organized (i'm sure there is but i dont see it yet)... on top of that i need to push tab, which would otherwise be no keystrokes at all.... okay, this rant is over.. (what the hell is that search button doing on the autocomplete list ?)
Actually, not autocompleting in the URL bar itself is a good thing. People complained about it all over. It really sucks when one URL is a substring of another URL....
reassigning to hewitt. Certainly not a blocker.

Cacaphooey? never heard of it. But this bug will probably earn wontfix/invalid eventually. you should be able to use the arrow keys to navigate the drop down (as already stated, inline completion was a design flaw). The searching features of the new bar should actually be rather useful, please report back after using the widget for a week. -- Keep an open mind.
