Info : i know that "-" can't be at the biginning of the site

We think, that issue being controversial should be better resolved upstream.
Please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla located at
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org in the Firefox product.
Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized
upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for
consideration in future updates.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.
Thanks in advance.
The upstream bug was closed as duplicate of
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196852, which is closed as
Although (to my surprise)
host -- --galaxiagxa--.forumcommunity.net
host -- -etcetera.city.fi
gives meaningful answer (I am not sure, whether it is the one you want -- it
leads to some kind of domain name provider or something of that sort for the
first name; I am testing this on Rawhide.) I cannot imagine that we would like
to maintain a substantial part of Firefox networking protocol in the
distribution. Closing as UPSTREAM and please try to persuade upstream to fix it
into your liking.
