I am a vim user. I installed the vimperator add on for firefox recently. I love it. But I am stuck up with the autocomplete of urls. How do i walk through (or choose) from the list of autocomplete results?. I looked for the answer but could not find it. Can someone help me?. Thanks

cnoremap <C-j> <Down>
cnoremap <C-k> <Up>

cnoremap ] <right>
cnoremap <C-n> <C-Left>
cnoremap <C-p> <C-right>
nnoremap ; :
