    Backspace key doesn't work with URL auto-complete (IE6 SP1)

    I use the auto-completion feature for URLs in IE's address bar. Since applying SP1, seems like the backspace key no longer works once the list of matching URLs drops down. Has anyone else noticed this? This is on XP SP1 with IE SP1 installed first.

    Thanks

    Hmmm... what did the backspace key used to do? I never new it had a special function for the Autocomplete dropdown lists. But from what I can gather, did it reset the dropdown box? It seems to work with IE6sp1 on Win98.

    It used to delete the last character or selection, but now it does nothing. Although I tried again and it's working. So it looks like this is going to be one of those PIA intermittent problems. I'll see if I can figure out when/why backspace wouldn't work. Thanks.

    Hi Charlie:
    I have Win 98 SE & IE6 SP1. Backspace key works fine. Let's hope it was just something with the keyboard temporarily. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
