Annoying Firefox Error Message

“Please check the name and try again.”

Firefox knows that I have accessed this URL before (it’s in my History), so there’s no point in telling me I may have made a mistake typing the address. This will only confuse inexperienced users.

Similarly if I click on a link in a page from a known site and the connection doesn’t work there’s little point in asking the user to check the name and try again.

It’s a trivial point but it happens a lot from Thailand where the Internet is very inconsistent in its performance and connectivity (Being very polite here.)

Other browsers do it too – it isn’t only Firefox.
