So I can't seem to get location bar search suggestions for bookmark smart keywords.

I visit websites the traditional way and get autocomplete search suggestions, such as in Wiktionary.
They are useful, for example, to know which pages exist on the website.

I use the smart keywords and don't get such suggestions.

Any insight into this, such as a add-on that does it, or do I have to keep searching websites the traditional way when it's due?

Thank you, and by the way, I disabled my personal theme for the screenshot, since it's under construction...

Did you define a smart keyword as per instructions in the link you posted?

If you just want to search for a link you think is present in your bookmarks hit CTRL+B to open bookmarks in the sidebar and then use the search field at the top.

Smark keyworks for bookmarks doesn't support search suggestions, as with them you don't have a way to specify the url from where these suggestions can be fetched. You need to use "real" search engines, as it's mentioned in the first page you linked.

In the case of wiktionary, you can install the engine offered by themselves; I checked it, it supports suggestions.
