Re: problem with completion system

The main resource for Prezto support (as with Oh My Zsh) is its GitHub project and associated issue tracker (https://github.com/sorin-ionescu/prezto). Searching its issues (including the closed ones) or posting an issue of your own if you can't figure it out could get you help. They'll be more familiar with it than the main zsh mailing lists will.

Prezto's completion-related stuff is set up in prezto/modules/completion/init.zsh. Browse through that to see what it's doing. It is commented. You probably care about the ALWAYS_TO_END, MENU_COMPLETE, and COMPLETE_IN_WORD options. https://github.com/sorin-ionescu/prezto/blob/6a812ed36bad9032df3645277793f5827dd64088/modules/completion/init.zsh#L25

Prezto, OMZ, and Antigen can be good on-ramps to zsh, but like Bart says, they set and implement so many things that they diverge from default zsh, and you need to use them and their source code as your main reference and learning tool.

In that case if there's a mailing list or other forum for prezto, I
suggest you ask your question there.  Plugin systems like oh-my-zsh
and prezto can be very nice, but they reconfigure so many things that
it's really not practical for us to try to debug them.
