>From my bug report to upstream:

When you start typing a URL you get the URL dropdown that shows matching
history. Often, I find myself wanting to open an old URL in a new tab, which I
can do by hitting ctrl-enter while the URL is in the entry field.

However, I've gotten used to only partially typing the URL, selecting the URL
in the dropdown with the arrow keys, and then hitting ctrl-enter.

That'll look like this text-screenshot ;)

URL: http://example.com/par                           < entry field
    |http://example.com/partial                    |
    |http://example.com/partial/12345              |  < selected line
    | ...                                          |

Now when I have selected the 12345 entry and hit ctrl-enter I would expect it
to open the 12345 entry in a new tab (I think galeon does this and that's why
I'm used to it), but it actually opens just the 'par' entry that I typed.


`chpe` has created two patches which are archived along with the bug at
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=68729 and
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=68835) and which together
fix the problem perfectly (along with another problem as noted in
comment #17).

It'd be nice if these could be added to the debian package (both patches
apply with some offsets against the current package's code).
