From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.5-1mdk i586; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010603 BuildID: 2001060306 URL name completion under the "Open Web Location" is a nice new feature but one with a counter intuitive UI The sequence of events is 1. I type in a partial URL 2. The combo box drops down with a list of URLS to complete 3. I move the arrow keys to select one of the URLS 4. Press return 5. The URL then gets put into the input box and I have to do something more to have it load the page It would be a lot nicer if that first return loaded the page rather than just put the URL in the dialog box Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.See above 2. 3.

I'm probably opposed to this rfe... sometimes people want to add to a url from autocomplete, eg, http://bo completing to http://bonsai.mozilla.org/ and I want to add c(vsblame.cgi?file=)+ctrl-v for some random file.

With build 2001062105 on Mac OS 9.1, I don't get an auto-completion menu at all. Is there a separate bug for that?

oh, wait a sec --this wfm when i'm in the URLbar. i didn't initially read this properly: the problem is with the textfield in the Open Web Location dialog. in which case, yes, hitting Enter doesn't automatically dismiss the dialog and load the page after selecting the url from the autocomplete list.

so, i'm still assuming this is an issue with the field in the Open Web Location dialog, not the URL bar --right? [btw, i see this on all platforms, 2001.08.27-comm.] this is what i'm doing: 1. bring Open Web Location dialog [shift+accel+L, or File > Open Web Location]. 2. in the textfield, start typing a url you've viewed --the autocomplete droplist should appear. 3. arrow down the droplist to select [highlight] a url. 4. hit the enter key. expected(*): at step (4), the dialog is dismissed and the url selected in step (3) is loaded in the browser. actual: at step (4), the selection appears in the dialog's textfield. however, the dialog remains up and the page doesn't load until you hit enter again. (*) the question is, is this really expected or a bug in the behavior of the selection within the droplist of this dialog?
Summary: Pressing Enter in autocomplete menu should load that URL → Pressing Enter in autocomplete menu should load that URL in Open Web Location dialog
The auto-complete menu in the dialog should behave the same way as the auto-complete menu in the browser window.
