Good point. That would be nice behaviour, I also find myself often
editing a URL just to get the dropdown.
Maybe the most sane option would be to bring back the arrow button
(as much as I dislike it) to show at least the possible search
engines/smart bookmarks. Or special case this situation and always show
the popup for search engines after pasting. If both is not desired,
maybe at least a hidden key combination could be added to bring up the
popup (something like shift+downarrow).
Hidden keycombo's are generally frowned upon, see for instance bug
117650. Bringing back the arrow button might just be a worthwile idea.
