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 !
