mozilla and slashdot.. strange anomaly


on all 5 of the comps I have mozilla on, 4 slackware, 1 windows (at work not home) using both mozilla 1.4 and 1.5.

I go to slashdot all the time (I am an addict), but unlike most sites it does nto remain in my location bar, I can type www.ker and then it fills the rest in to kernel.org. however slashdot will not, on any computer, it will never remember that I had been there. however it saves my user/password for the site.. what is going on?

If you've been typing www.slashdot.org and expecting it to fill in after a few letters.. I congratulate you and award you the stupid question of the year award. As the web site address is slashdot.org with no www.

i know that now, I never realised it was a site with no www. but it is one of those things that can easily go unnoticed.
