    Default How to select a url from the native browser menu

    Hello,
    When starting to type a url in the address bar it starts a search to look if you have used the url once before with no problem.
    When it finds it is there I tried to click the url to pick it but it never picks it and I have to type the whole url again.
    How can one pick the url without typing the whole url.
    Thank you

    Pinch to zoom doesn't work.

    My success rate when picking a url from the search drop-down is around 10% - it's a bug.

    Another browser bug (I believe) is there are constant, very short, wi-fi drops that cause glitchiness. Looking forward to the next update!

    I've found that this happens when Google is selected as your default search engine. I switched to Bing and I've noticed a big improvement. I now can select from the history drop down with about 90% accuracy. Try for yourself. Google's homepage is also a nightmare to type a search query. Have you ever had it just load a previous random page before you get half of your url typed? Give Bing a try and see if it doesn't help.

    I gave this a try, cleared cache, etc. No change.

    it works but my experience is that it misses more... And this is the reason I so badly miss arrow keys
