http://loclahost:8080 auto redirect to http://www.localhost:8080

I have Tomcat 6.18 installed on my machine. When I try to access it on web browser http://loclahost:8080 auto redirects to http://www.localhost:8080 on mozilla firefox. On IE the redirect doesn't happen but, even when the server is running it says page can't be displayed.

I don't have any redirects configured and have not modified any conf files. I just have the default installation.

One strange thing is even when I can't access the tomcat server vuia web browser, I can access the web services deployed in ut through a web service explorer, which means the server is running fine.

Please help me on this.

Thanks in advance.
