Bug Description

Steps :
1- You want to go to http://ubuntu.com/phone
2- You type "ubuntu" on the adress bar.
3- You get a list of URLs from which contains http://ubuntu.com/

Result:
- You need to type the FULL URL

Expected :
- A button to tell the browser "put that url for me on the adresse bar".

Chrome mobile does provide a button next to each URL on the autocomple list, once you click on it you get that URL on the adresse bar so you can complete your URL.

-- SOLUTION --
The design species the suggestions to be populated by the search engine. ATM they only surface bookmarks and history

Giorgio, I don’t think the solution in the bug description solves the issue reported here. If I understand correctly the report, Adnane wants to be able to do the following:

 - type "ubuntu" in the address bar
 - select the "http://ubuntu.com/" history entry from the suggestions to populate the address bar, but do not browse to it
 - type "phone" to complete the URL to "http://ubuntu.com/phone"
 - validate to browse to "http://ubuntu.com/phone"

I've marked the bug as incomplete, as it could point to 3 separate features

1) display suggestions from history and bookmarks - currently available
2) display suggestions from Search Engine - current not available, but planned
3) provide a 'fill address bar' action on search suggestions as in Chrome mobile - not planned, but we can discuss it for tablet and desktop browser as we have more real estate

@Giorgio : The bug only refers to the third feature, but not from search suggestions only history suggestions which is what the browser provides for now.

@Adnane this is a feature that would be more reasonable on tablet/desktop browsers
