Netscape 4.xx and earlier versions of Mozilla autocompleted URLs that were manually entered into the location bar, as you manually entered it. For example, I was able to enter "moz", and it would automatically give me the closest match, "mozilla.org". Now it presents a drop-down list of possible completions, necessitating the extra step of choosing the desired completion (as IE does it). I really miss the old way--the new way is the main reason I preferred Mozilla over IE. I propose this change be reverted, or at least give the user the option.
I couldn't agree more. It's a dup however. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 77935 ***
