When DNS is set up to append a suffix to domain names, you can visit a web site
by simply typing, for example, "www" in the address bar.  But if you want to
send a page to someone, the URL "http://www/foo.html" will likely be useless. 
If it's possible (and I don't know if it is, depending on how the OS returns DNS
queries) the FQDN should be included, rather than just the subdomain.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure DNS to append a suffix to unknown domain names
2.load a URL
3.use the "Send Page" menu item

Actual Results:  
only the subdomain is included in the sent URL

Expected Results:  
the full domain name should be included in the sent URL

Oops, I didn't understand the problem completely, so ignore my WFM.

This is definitely not a bug. However, I suppose it could potentially be an
improvement (not sure if it's implementable). Setting to enhancement.
Severity: normal → enhancement
OS: Windows 2000 → All
Hardware: PC → All
Summary: "Send Page" should use fully qualified domain names → "Send Page" should use Fully Qualified Domain Names [FQDN]

FF seems to replace the hostname with the FQDN now in the address bar as well as
'Send Page,' so this is no longer an issue.
