I have installed vim-latex v1.10.0 on Fedora 28, using vim-plug as follows:

Plug 'vim-latex/vim-latex'

F9 does not work with \cite{. It works with \ref{, but n and p cycle through the results of the last search command.

I found the solution: :h cite gives

"By disabling the setting Tex_UseCiteCompletionVer2 [ls_a_dA], Latex-Suite will also look for .bbl files (if no .bib file is found) or a \begin{thebibliography} environment. However, a filtering of the results (as described above) will not be available." (latex-suite.txt)

This was exactly my case, since I used \begin{thebibliography}. Thus the solution was to add the line let Tex_UseCiteCompletionVer2=0 in .vimrc.
