Subdomain Autofill List Order Not as Described

Ben's responses on this thread suggest that autofill list sorting follows rules roughly equivalent to...
1. sort favorites to the top
2. then sort the closest URL to the top (including subdomains)

I have a situation where two accounts' URLs are different subdomains of the same domain. Both are favorites so I would expect the favorite "boost" from rule 1 above to be nullified. I would expect rule 2 to be the one that decides the order.

However, account "B" is listed first on the subdomain matching account "A". I would expect account "A" to be listed first on its subdomain.

Am I misunderstanding how the list items are supposed to be ordered? Are there other factors affecting this that Ben didn't mention on that thread?


"Account A"

  • Vault: "Private"
  • URL: "website" | "https://foo.example.tld/dir1/dir2/index.cgi" (all urls redacted but subdomain and folder levels are kept equivalent)

"Account B"

Auto fill List Results

On subdomain for Account A: https://foo.example.tld/dir1/dir2/index.cgi
Autocomplete list:
1. "Account B"
2. "Account A" (I expect this to be first)

On subdomain for Account B: "https://level2.level1.example.tld/dir1/dir2/index.cgi"
Autocomplete list:
1. "Account B" (I expect this to be first)
2. "Account A"

    @benrifkah I tested 1Password X on different subdomains, and I couldn't reproduce your issues. 1Password always prioritizes the login item with the correct URL first for me. That being said, if possible, could you please send me the real links to your sites? I will do some tests and get back with what I find.
