Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

When using the location entry to search with a Smart Bookmark, if the text you have entered shows any matches for URLs in your history, then navigating past these items with the keyboard causes the entered text to change. By the time you get to the Smart Bookmark, your entered text does not change back.

I don't know the best way to deal with this. Why do we need to change the text in the entry at all? It seems a bit rude to destroy whatever the user has typed in.

See attached video for clarity.
