I have set the URL as a link. Whenever I try to access it, the autocomplete makes it http://www.lxdev.com/bblink.html. I cannot see a simple way to stop this behaviour. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.See 'Details' 2. 3. Actual Results: See Details Expected Results: Mozilla should have done nothing to the URL, especially as 'lxdev' is set as a URL for which the proxy should be ignored. In terms of usability, this seems to be a default behaviour. Behaviours such as this should be switched off by default. This looks like a classic case of trying to anticipate the average user's wishes. There is no such thing as an 'average' user.

REOPEN: Lets get a full problem description first. Are you using a proxy w/ a "no proxy" config? You made a comment that suggests that. Also, if you type "nslookup lxdev", does that resolve?
This is probably fixup, not autocomplete
Duping against 115539. There is a pref to disable this fixup (which will only be triggered if the host address could not be found) but no UI. See the patch in the bug for the pref value. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 115539 ***
I'm still wanting more user information. If there is a proxy, the fixup is not local, it occurs because of the proxy server response (many proxies emulate our fixup behavior with a redirect when they have a DNS hostname lookup error).
V: Domain Guessing may have happened because DNS was configured wrong causing hostname "lxdev" not to be found -or- DG had a phase were it pre-emptively mapped "hostname" -> "wwww.hostname.com" (see bug 147119).
