scheme;foo URLs can be often typed in by mistiming 'shift' and ';' for the ':'. RFC 1738 lists ';' as a character reserved for use in the scheme-specific part of the URL. This means it's invalid in the scheme part, and we can safely assume a ':' was meant. Currently, ftp;//site.com loads http://www.ftp.com/ (thanks to stupid .com autoguessing), which redirects to some company that bought them.
If you can point me to the URL clean up code, I can make an attempt. Should be little work/risk for a decent reward.

We aren't going to support a lot of overly-clever fixup in the URL bar code anymore. Feel free to do this via internet keywords :)
MASS-CHANGE: This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state. If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way. If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar). If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state. Query tag for this change: mass-UNCONFIRM-20090614
