--- Comment #8 from Bartosz Dziewoński <matma....@gmail.com> ---
I installed Firefox 3.6 to do some testing, and googled around.

The suggestions list entries you're clicking on are simple links (<a>
elements), with some magic dust sprinkled on them to e.g. update the form field
when you click them (in addition to doing the default link action – sending you
to the target page).

These additional actions also include hiding the list of suggestions, which
means hiding the link that was just clicked. This happens during the handling
of the default action (visiting the target page).

The problem is that Firefox 3.6, unlike other browsers, will not perform the
default action if the link is not visible to the user – and it isn't, because
we've just hidden it. It doesn't care that it was visible when clicked.

We could probably try working around this by hiding the list after the new page
starts loading. The code is rather brittle, though, so this will require some
boring testing :(
