Bookmark auto-completion missing www prefix

  • I found a bug in addressbar auto-completion for bookmarks. The issue occurs when you have a bookmark with a www prefix in the URL and the site does not work without the www part (i.e. it does not redirect to the URL with www).

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. create a bookmark with this URL:
    2. optionnaly add the Nickname "o" to the bookmark you created
    3. start typing "otpbank" to the addressbar (or just "o", if you have set up the nickname)
    4. the addressbar will show the bookmark's URL, press enter to accept it
    5. the site cannot be reached, you get an error message saying "’s server DNS address could not be found". Now if you check the autocompleted URL, the www part is missing. If you write "www." to the beginning of the URL, the page will load correctly.
