As it turns out, the great features of autocomplete and suggested sites pull results from favourites and history.
Typed URLs pulls results from the above reg key. They appear in the reg key only if you type out the address and press Enter. That'l save it. Then click the down arrow of the address bar, and voila! Its there.
Half typeing the url (or domain name), and pressing down arrow key and enter will not save, as thats using the autocomplete/suggested sites feature.
Im not sure if its silly to answer your own question, or if its rewarding cause you're the first to find a solution... :-s
