Awesome Bar suggested site has higher priority than bookmarks

For some sites that I go to frequently, I need to navigate to a login page each time that I go there, so I have the login page bookmarked. In most cases, I find it easier to start typing the URL and just hitting Enter on the autofilled site. The issue is that when it autofills, it just autofills to the root page.

EX: 1. I need to log in to www.example.com, which has a login URL of www.example.com/login 2. Typing "ex" into the awesome bar suggests "www.example.com" first, then my bookmarked "www.example.com/login", so I need to go down one record every single time. In most of my cases www.example.com is not a valid site, as everything is on a sub page of some sort.

In chrome, it will learn which sites you frequently go to, and will suggest those. As I am never on the root page, www.example.com, it would never come up.

Is there a way to correct this so that it suggests the bookmarks/frequently used pages first?
