It is quite common that when you enter a URL to load in the address bar in a browser to introduce some typos along the way! It is particularly true when it is done in a hurry. Although not all of these errors can be automatically corrected, but most of the errors/misspellings related to the TLD’s can be corrected automatically when you are using Firefox with an extension named URL Fixer.

URL Fixer corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation).

This version will correct common misspellings of .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, .mil, and all other mainstream TLDs, as well as the protocol (http:, https:). By right-clicking on the address bar, you can set it to auto-correct your errors, or you can have it ask you before making any corrections.

URL Fixer can downloaded here for the Firefox (also compatible with Firefox 4.0 betas).
