I've noticed many browsers which if i type reader.google and press ctrl+enter go to http://www.reader.google.com but ppl will be expecting it to go to reader.google.com IE7 has fixed this! we shouldn't lag behind!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.type a subdomain address like bugzilla.mozilla
2.press ctrl+enter shift+enter or ctrl+shift+enter whichever applicable for url completion for .com, .net,.org respectively

Actual Results:  
browser will redirect to http://www.bugzilla.mozilla.org which is not expected!

Expected Results:  
browser should redirect to http://bugzilla.mozilla.org which is not expected!

don't prepend www. when a '.' is already there in the typed skeleton URL according to the context

This bug hasn't been fixed in Firefox 3 either. I ask for help.

This is a minor bug but needs attention by someone who understands the code I bet such a person wouldn't even take 5 mins to fix it!

There is no way to know if Firefox should or should not add www. There are such domains that fit the pattern http://www.foo.bar.com 

If you want to disable this use about:config and set browser.fixup.alternate.prefix to an empty string.
