PlayBook browser hints not selectable

Probably simple ignorance, but...

My new Playbook with OS2.0.1 is the only BlackBerry product I've ever used.

In the browser, when I want to visit a Page, I drag down from the top of the screen, and the address bar appears. As I type, if I have previously visited similar-named pages, the browser starts to display hints below the address bar, with possible Web pages to choose from. This would be. Ery handy, if it would actually let me select one of the suggestions. 


What happens, instead, is that the instant I touch a hinted url, the entire action bar (menu, url field, tab thumbnails, etc., is dismissed. 


What I am saying is that I must type fully, every lengthy, complicated Page/Site url, every time. 



The hints/guesses seem to be just useless taunting, since they actively elude me AND destroy whatever I have typed so far.

Hi kevinmcl,

To permanently turn on URL bar, swipe from upper bezel then tap switch on right side just left of star with green cross.
