I completely agree. I haven't downloaded the build or anything, but I loved the way that the old autocomplete filled in the best match for you. The only disadvantage I can see with this method is that if you've been to <http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap.html> (and no other pages at Mozilla.org), and then later type <http://www.mozilla.org> and press Enter, you'll end up looking at the Roadmap again.
So, we should do whatever we do when there's a disagreement... make it a pref! I suggest a new checkbox in the Smart Browsing prefs panel:
---Location Bar Autocomplete--- Automatically completes text typed into the Location bar.
[X] Enable Location bar autocomplete [X] Go to best match when Enter is pressed
