Thanks for the bug report. First of all please make sure that you
upgrade to the latest version of FireFox. I have 3.0.5+nobinonly-
0ubuntu0.8.10.1 installed on my 8.10 and a security advisory (USN-690-1)
have also been send out recommending upgrade to above version.

If the problem still persists make sure that you don't have any
extensions installed (except Ubuntu Firefox Modifications) and that you
have a clean firefox profile. This can be achieved by creating a new
user or by removing ~/.mozilla directory. If that solves the problem it
was either a bad extension or something in your profile that caused the

If problem still not solved please try to make DNS lookup for www.fi.
You can do that by opening a terminal and type 'host www.fi'. I have
pasted my output below. If the lookup gives another result it is most
likely your ISP's DNS server that causes the issue.

www.fi mail is handled by 10 mimas.inet.fi.
www.fi mail is handled by 15 calypso.inet.fi.
www.fi mail is handled by 20 smtp.tele.fi.
www.fi mail is handled by 30 smtp.inet.fi.

Please note that I don't have the issue with www.fi being changed to
www.fi.com in firefox.
