Some time ago, the Firefox developers decided it was a good idea to trim the http(s):// from the address in the address bar. Since then, I've been getting HTTPS site where I don't want it, because I can't see what I'm doing. Especially so because HTTPS has no concept of virtual host names, and putting https:// in front of any domain might put you on a completely different web site. So, when I accidentally typed https:// in front of an URL once, it will remember that, but not show me...

Whenever one of the servers in /etc/resolv.conf is unreachable, Linux/glibc/whatever isn't smart enough not to retry it for a while. This results in a lot of services becoming unavailable, because a lot of them do reverse lookups on all incoming connections (like SSH), which will hang for the time-out of the first DNS server query.
