UI glitch or bug i Firefox 0.9.3

Location usage pattern triggers UI glitch, or is it a feature?

About 8 times out of ten I end up on the "wrong" page after deleting end of url. This is the scenario:
  1. select end of url with mouse (right hand). I do this by moving the mouse to the right and slightly down
  2. delete with keyboard (left hand)
  3. press enter (left hand)
If the mouse (1) is still moving when I press enter (3) I end up on a random page from the url history dropdown. The history dropdown is highlighted and the location bar is showing the truncated url. Should I report this as a bug or is it my usage pattern that is the bug? Maybe it is a question if the url history should appear when I press delete or not.
