just to make sure, do You mean the setting:
Setting: Preferences: [Search]
  • Enable search suggestions
With this option enabled, the completition of search suggestions works form me with the default settings (I checked the Google search).

(Otter RC12, webkit, Win 7).

@Quetzal: if for some reason it has been changed in your local settings you can always find it on GitHub:
Normally you'd find this in Preferences > Search tab > Google > Edit... > Suggestions Query tab.

Is that what you're looking for?

Here it works fine both in the Search Field near the address bar as well as in the Search Field in the Start Page.
