Browser won't accept URL

Anyone else have this problem? I noticed it first in (manually updated) 2.1.1 (I think, maybe it was 2.0.0). The problem was still present in 2.1.4 and I'm using 2.1.5 now, with the same issue.

From settings, extras, open browser. Google is the home page (luckily!). I hit the address bar, delete the google url that is in the field that opens up, type the url I want to go to, then hit "Go" in the bottom right of the screen.

The address-bar-with-keyboard-window closes to go back to the browser, but nothing else happens. The new url is not loaded nor is it present in the address bar. Just the google page as it was before.

The only way for me to go to a specific url is to search for it in google's search field, let google find the site I mean, then tap the link google gives me...

Am I doing something wrong? Anyone else experiencing this bug (as I presume it's a bug). I do recall using the browsing + address bar successfully pre-2.x.x...

Oh. Well. I experimented some more.

To answer my own question: apparently you must add "http://" before the url. "www" won't do it, and nothing at all in front is not allowed either. So. Note to self: make sure to go through the complete hassle of switching between keyboard layouts loads of times to add the 7 characters that the browser could have assumed... bah.

This is so primitive.
I have not had to put up with this stupidity for many years until ereaders. 20 Years ago maybe. When micro processor, ram, floppy discs and dial up to Internet was less powerful than KT.

Or just do what I do: pick an existing "Favorite" from your list, and backspace until you get rid of everything except "http://www."

Hah good idea. I wonder if I'd manage to put a favourite in that is just "http://www." That would solve lots of hassle!
