No, I disagree.  These people look incredibly stupid, but it's just because they have no connection to the onotology of internet "sites." Specifically, Firefox allows you to type search terms into the address box.  For them, there's no obvious difference between typing


and typing

facebook login

Why should the first one always work, and the second one not? Search is so ubiquitous now that people don't even know when they're searching and when they're not .


P.S.: BTW, the random phrase I typed into firefox was "my pants." I strongly recommend that you not try this.

P.P.S: OT, but it's not my fault this time.
