autocomplete no longer works
autocomplete no longer works for me.
It used to be my e-mail and facebook accounts would recognize names. For example, if I wanted to send an e-mail to Joesmith@google.com, i would hit the "j" key and all the names or addresses that start with "J" would pop up. That no longer happens.
same with facebook. If i wanted to tag someone, I would start typing their name, and it would show a list of people as well.
That no longer happens. As recently as Friday the 25th it worked fine.
