We've discussed this before. Entering a non-existant host name into
the address bar of most browsers causes the browser to do some kind of
search. The classic is if you accidentally try and go to http://
http://something .... hmmm Doesn't work for me at the moment because
I'm using opendns (one of the downsides of opendns). There is a way
you can change the address bar search engine firefox uses.
