I cannot even tell how long this has upset me: if my web browser does not know the address I want to go to, it simply slaps a www in front and a .com at the end. To me, that is a typical case of "well intended". I hate it when my computer tries to be more intelligent than me. It doesn't work.

Some time ago,  however, I stumblede upon the solution: this is a feature called domain guessing, and you can switch it off! I had already looked in vain in every nook of the preferences dialog, of course -- instead, you have to type about:config into the URL bar, then set the entry browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false.

Simple, really.
