    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

    Playbook 64gig

    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
