[Fwd: Re: firefox is regularly dying]

So, when you have a problem looking up linux-kvm.org in Fedora 11 Beta, what is this telling you?

That you have a DNS configuration problem with Fedora 11 Beta. Maybe you forgot to specify the DNS server or there is some other DNS-related issue.

Whether you can refer to a domain by it's domain name only in a browser
address bar, or by prepending 'www.' to the domain name

linux-kvm.org vs. www.linux-kvm.org

is a DNS issue, and is not a browser issue. Without explaining all the
details, the DNS server authoritative for the linux-kvm.org domain
should include DNS resource records so that linux-kvm.org and
www.linux-kvm.org can both be found. The DNS server for that domain does
in fact do it. Evidently it does, because the url "http://linux-kvm.org";
works fine for me when I type it in the address bar of Firefox, press
<enter>, and get the expected website.

 OK, I was just booted on fedora 11 beta, and that tells me the

 I notice when I go there on fedora 10, it winds up sticking
 a www. in front (and nslookup can find www.linux-kvm.org).

 Has URL search been disabled by default in newest firefox?
