I'm trying to enable Firefox's "Browse by Name" feature, which lets you type a random string into the location bar and automatically have it searched using the search provider of your choice. This is what I did:
http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=, which is used for Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" feature, as described here.
But if I type
http://google/, a blank page which obviously isn't the site I want.

dig, I get the following output:
; <<>> DiG 9.8.1 <<>> google ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 63911 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;google.

NXDOMAIN result to a DNS lookup of
http://www.google.com/ when I enter
