Unable to reproduce here. I believe thre's a minimum character count before it begins to autocomplete. Might be 3 chars iirc.

What string is being entered that doesn't autocomplete?

(In reply to Kubilay Kocak from comment #1)
I tried in this PR:https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256201

Typing "as" to assign the PR to asomers@. I'm pretty sure I ended up copying the email address because it either did not autocomplete or it was super slow. The three characters you mention sound right because typing "aso" does autocomplete.

I will close this and keep an eye on this in case I can reproduce it.

Thanks for checking this.

yep, so Bugzilla's autocomplete extension has a min 2 char requirement before autocompleting for performance reasons, made more challenging because we have a huge list.

We've (I've) considered possible improvements to this, where we 'disable' (or exclude) accounts that haven't signed in for greater than <period> for auto-completion, which may open up the door for auto-completing with less input characters.
