Details

As apostrophes can't exist with in domain names I'm suggesting that Firefox should automatically either ignore them or automatically remove them, this would help those people who add the apostrophe to the URL because it is a company that has an apostrophe in its name but not in their web address as that's not possible, if something can't exist in a domain name then FF should just ignore it, at least in this case. 
Obviously they can exist later in addresses, but this bug is specifically for the domain part of the address only.

This would be great for the times I accidentally hit the apostrophe key on my way to the Enter key.  The keys are like right next to each other.
