How do I prevent Firefox from adding 'www' and '.com' to local URLs?

I have a web server on my local network that I access via http://test/
Whenever I forget to turn on this server (or if it goes into standby or whatever), Firefox first tries the corrrect URL, then tries http://www.test.com. I find this more annoying that I probably should.
Any idea how I can prevent this second-guessing by Firefox? It's got to be in about:config somewhere, but I'm blessed if I can find it.
Failing that, how do I learn to be less anal?
