User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 Firefox/2.0b2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 Firefox/2.0b2

I went to the preference page in minimo and set my home page to "http://mylocalserver". When I restarted minimo it actually tried calling this in the address bar ""http://www.mylocalserver"

It seems to add the www no matter what. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go into preferences
2. Have your device in the cradle on a local network
3. Make your home page a local webserver
4. Save the prefs
5. Restart minimo and notice the address bar



Expected Results:  
the home page should be exactly as you entered it

I also tried to add the local URL manually using:

pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://localserver/test/");

in all.js

when I restarted the app it was still replaced with http://www.localserver.com/test/ which is an invalid address.

Looking this. Local webserved apps is a nice way to enable Web services and Interop with Minimo. There is a URI fixUp function that goes on at Startup. Maybe we should enable that only when user types something and not for all preexisting ( or certified ) URI.
