Has anyone else inexplicably lost the place name suggestions for birth and death place editing?

Since accepting the new cookie and privacy policy - which may be a coincidence - I have lost all place name suggestions when editing profiles for birth and death place. My death place still shows "hide place name suggestions" next to the field, so I have no reason to believe anything has changed from a user settings perspective. It's a small thing, but kind of a death by papercuts as far as time use goes. Any help appreciated!

Btw: Mac / Chrome 66.0.3359.181

I've lost it also. Was peek-a-boo for a few days, but has not returned for at least 24 hours. Miss it. I tried the RootSearch problem fix, with no results for this problem.
Thanks, Patricia! It's a little thing, that's kind of a big thing :)
Yes I have and I use Chrome on a Chromebook. What baffles me is that it's not happening on every profile I visit.

Another poster mentioned this issue in this thread:

And me. Don't use it that often, but it is nice if parts of location are not known to me.

Gone for me too. I'm using IE11 on a Windows 10 PC, so looks like it is not specific to any particular browser or operating system.

It's failing for me too. I'm on Mac / Firefox.

The first thing I did was reboot my Mac entirely.  After I started Firefox again, the drop down worked ONCE.  Then it stopped working again.

I then decided to give Safari a try.  Didn't work there for me either.

Seems to be sporadic and platform independent. The only pattern I’ve seen is it working for an empty field but not working for a field with content you are changing.

Still not working on empty fields for me during Edit. :(
Same for me.  It doesn't work on empty fields, but sometimes when I am editing locations.  I use different browsers, so I'll have to investigate.

The place suggestions should be working again. Let me know if you are still having issues.
