Website URL changes after I hit enter

Steps: I enter "wowt.com" (that's a local TV station web site) into the address bar. When I do this, I get suggestions of sites that I have visited before (that's ok). As soon as I hit "Enter" on the keyboard, it takes me to "woot.com". This is not an autocomplete issue. This only happens in Firefox (I've tried in Chrome and IE9).

This seems like a spellcheck feature for the address bar in Firefox that needs to be turned off.

Nevermind... it was the AdBlock Plus plug-in doing the change.
