Enter any url prefixed with ":" 2. 3. Expected Results: Instead of the actual site it is loading a common page from wikipedia
actually that is the first google result for "http" search
Thats true. But is this the expected outcome from the user's point of view? From the end-user perspective it would be better if the ":" is simply omitted and the actual site gets loaded. Does this makes sense?
I think this is now fixed, since bug 565966 disabled the "I'm feeling lucky" functionality in Firefox 4.0, exactly to avoid these surprising events.
