Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0 Iceweasel/25.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130809004002

Steps to reproduce:

In the URL bar types file:///tmp/COU<TAB>


Actual results:

Nothing.


Expected results:

It should have expanded to file:///tmp/COUCH.html
as that was the only match possible.

How old fashioned to have the user need to type the rest in!
