Weird behavior when adding www to the url

  • I tried to load a site by typing it without the www and it didn't work (blame the site, no worries), but when I add the www, Opera autopopulates the url in a strange way. Check this out:

    1. First I type (tries to load

    1. Then I type www (so far so good):

    1. But as soon as I type the dot...... this happens:

    As you can see, it's trying to load a url from the history, but displaying it wrong: what I typed + the internal path of the site, without the domain.

    However, if I press <ENTER>, it works, but I think that's because I'm actually selecting the suggestion below, regardless of the issue with the address bar. But, if I click somewhere else, or go to another window and come back, when I press <ENTER> it fails due to the invalid url.

    I guess that in order for you to reproduce this you will need to have visited a subpage of site which doesn't work with www and doesn't automatically redirect to www.domain. Link to my url.

    I hope this makes sense. 😁
