Thus, the following valid pages fail to load: - http://aura-.deviantart.com/ - http://-lildragon-.deviantart.com/ I can't find any website with a subdomain starting with a hyphen at the moment but I do know that such addresses fail to load as well. If for nothing else, addresses with a non-existing subdomain at deviantart.com return a 404 error page (such as http://this-page-doesnt-exist.deviantart.com/) while a page like http://-something.deviantart.com fails to validate. All of the examples provided are based on deviantart.com since that's where I have found the most subdomains with hyphens, but I'm sure this also happens on other domain names. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Insert an address for a website in which the subdomain starts or ends with hyphen. 2. Click "Go" or press return. 3. Firefox fails to find the website. Actual Results: Server not found Firefox can't find the server at -lildragon-.deviantart.com. Expected Results: Load the page correctly
