[Bug 84242] Re: Firefox address bar search broken using proxy

I just verified this on firefox ( and the behaviour
is the same, using a clean profile with and without safe mode.

In a clean profile type "query" into the address bar, you will be
redirected to <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Query>

Now go to the proxy settings, and setup a proxy for HTTP and repeat. You
are sent to <http://query/>

I have used both Squid and Tinyproxy to test this, Tinyproxy log appears
to show that Firefox doesn't even talk to google:

CONNECT   Apr 19 14:57:00 [17950]: Connect (file descriptor 7): ktulu []
CONNECT   Apr 19 14:57:00 [17950]: Request (file descriptor 7): GET http://query/ HTTP/1.1
INFO      Apr 19 14:57:00 [17950]: No proxy for query
ERROR     Apr 19 14:57:00 [17950]: opensock: Could not lookup address "query".
