All Your Typos Are Belong To Us

I can't believe it, I have been looking for something like this for a long time and then one day without even trying URL Fixer popped up in a search for Bookmark addons for Firefox.

Not sure how it fit that category but this addon is awesome. Have you every typed in the wrong URL into the address bar but only by adding an extra "w" in the front or maybe "con" instead of "com"? Then you need URL Fixer.

This little addon for Firefox will fix all the stupid little mistakes you make when fat-fingering a web address. I've always thought that Firefox or any Browser for that matter, should be more forgiving. If I type "wwww" the browser should realize I meant "www". Sure, there could actually be a "wwww" sub-domain but how likely is that?

Of course, this isn't the be all to end all "fixes" for such typos but it will fit the bill for now.

I would rather have some "exception handling" for URLs... try the malformed URL, if it doesn't work then try to "fix" it. That might make more sense.

But in any case, this is a great addon so give it a try :-)
