This seem like a bug in the web browser. Until you press a backspace button on the keyboard no text is sent which means you won't get suggestions for a search box (test e.g. on this site - when you type in words a placeholder text is always shown; once you press space and then remove it with backspace the placeholder disappears and suggestions are shown).

This looks indeed like a bug in browser engine. On some sites, like google, disabling auto complete and allowing the site populate suggestions works as it is supposed to, but on this site autocomplete and placeholder texts are clearly broken. I've filed a bug against the browser and we will investigate the issue.
