    Hmmm, this is odd since it works fine for me with Mozilla 1.7 on XP.
    If I click on the www.əɛ.net URL in the email message in Thunderbird
    Mozilla is launched and goes straight to the page - though the URL
    somehow gets translated to

    If I restart Mozilla and then paste www.əɛ.net in it works as well. Only
    this time the URL is neither translated to nor
    converted to as you describe in your other
    message - it stays as www.əɛ.net.
