Some malformed URLs can lead to Microsoft website on a PC running Win 2000
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 Mistyping an URL, specifically by putting "http://http" (also alone), sistematically leads to microsoft.com. On my PC, running Win 2000 SP4, IE6 and NS7.2 either reply with the "page cannot be displayed" message or bring me to a search page. Firefox version is 1.0 PR. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open Firefox, 2. type "http://http..." (dots indicate nothing or any other address, ex.: "http://http://www.firefox.com/") in the address bar, 3. press [Enter]. Actual Results: Displayed URL is "http://http", displayed web page is "http://www.microsoft.com/". Pressing [Esc] while focus is on the address bar shows the correct URL. Expected Results: Pop up a window telling the user that the URL is malformed or unknown.
