Caught in bug 951624 comment 45. Paolo found that typing "t:" resulted in a result for "Visit http://www.google.com/search?q=t:...". 

On Windows, "t:" is the start of a valid path. On unix-like OSes, it is not a valid path.

Ah-ha! We handle this correctly on Window, where we see it as a path and over to navigate to file:///t:/

However, on Linux this isn't a valid path. And nsDefaultURIFixup is returning a keyword search - even though we said we don't want to use that. So this is a bug in nsDefaultURIFixup.
Er, to clarify: That's both Linux and OSX. Anything non-Windows.
