Browse through automatic filter selection

I have a spreadsheet of about 6000 lines.
Formerly I used to create an automatic filter, then press arrow to show the selection and then, as I typed some letters I got the desired item as expected.
Now, on LibreOffice 3.5 and newer 3.6, when I make an automatic filter the only way of selecting an item is to move the scroll bar until reach the desired item.
Really it is much more comfortable the old way is these big spreadsheets than it is now.
Is there some configuration to get the former behaviour?

Best regards

There is a request for enhancement:

The option works for the first letter at least from 3.6.5
