IE 7 address bar URL auto-complete
The question I have is about address bar autocomplete. I've used
Firefox on my old PC and in firefox, as I type a URL in the address
bar, FF shows me a list of matching sites.

I'm pretty sure IE did that too and I've looked all over Options, but
can't seem to find a way to turn this feature on. It does seem to
sometimes fill in the address bar, but not consistently.

I'm running Win XP Pro with SP3, IE 7.0.5730.11, my firewall and
security software is Windows Live OneCare. The PC is an Intel Core 2
2.13 Ghz with 2Gb of memory.

Thanks for helping.
