Description long 2003-01-14 03:11:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Before mozilla 1.0.1 I could enter 'google' or 'redhat' or 'slashdot' in the URL
entry box and it would automatically try google.com, www.google.com,
www.redhat.com, etc.  Of course I had to have Enable Internet Keywords turned
off in my preferences to make this work.  Now, however, if I just enter the word
redhat in the URL bar I get this message:

The connection was refused when attempting to contact redhat.

I *really* prefer the old behavior as it made for speedy manual browsing (now I
have to type www.redhat.com if I want to go to Redhat's home page).



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mozilla 1.0.1
2. Edit menu -> Preferences -> Navigator -> Smart Browsing
3. Uncheck Enable Internet Keywords, click OK
4. Delete anything in the URL bar and enter the word 'redhat'.  Press Enter.

    

Actual Results:  "The connection was refused when attempting to contact redhat"
comes up in a new dialog box.


Expected Results:  I should be taken to www.redhat.com.


Additional info:

mozilla-1.0.1-2.7.3 is the rpm -q output

Comment 1 long 2003-04-11 22:11:40 UTC
Problem solved.  It turns out I had a domain in the 'search' line in
/etc/resolv.conf that was set up to do wildcard DNS so everytime I would enter
'redhat' or 'google' it would try and connect to redhat.wildcard.org or
google.wildcard.org and end up failing to connect.
