Why does Firefox not auto fill in the location bar for bookmarks, tags and webpages?

With the following Firefox 18.0.1 settings on MAC OS X 10.8.2 the auto fill in does not work at all:

History: Remember Location Bar: History and Bookmarks

While I was browsing through the forum I found this article:


So I changed browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed to false and since then auto fill in works for webpages, bookmarks and tags. Should auto fill in not work with the option set to true??
