User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

I wanted to go to www.google.com but when I typed that in and hit return
www.google.com.au came up. If I deleted ".au" and hit return, the .au would
return. It is impossible to connect to www.google.com . I had never visited
www.google.com.au before.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. You might not be able to reproduce this if not in an *.au domain.
2. type www.google.com
3. 

Actual Results:  
http://www.google.com.au/

Expected Results:  
http://www.google.com
And it works with another browser ?
It's possible that google redirects you

Invalid. That's Google who does that, depending on your ip-address. I'm in
Belgium, so I always have to go to www.google.be, even when I type www.google.com.

But you can set your preference if you like. To change this, click on the
google.com at the lower right. That will set a cookie in your browser, which
records your preference. The next time, you won't see the redirect.

PS : why do you report this as a bug in Mozilla ? The same happens in every
other browser !
