When opening web pages by typeing the address in the windows run dialog (Start -
> Run),  The browser correctly appears however windows complains that it could
not find the address.  This also means that the run dialog does not save the
address in it's history.

I don't suppoes this is a very high priority bug, but it does really affect the
way I browse.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Start Button
2. Select Run
3. Type a web address (e.g: www.voxar.com)
4. Press enter (or click ok)

Actual Results:  
FireFox starts up correctly showing the requested page, but windows complains
that it can't find the address, make sure you typed it correctly etc. etc.

Expected Results:  
FireFox starts up correctly showing the requested page and windows does not
complain, and saves the URL in its history.
