Discovered by kiritshuko, regarding lightIRC 1.3.2 Build 135

Clicking links with all lowercase protocols (http, ftp, etc.) opens the browser to the correct URL:

http://www.google.com ==> http://www.google.com
ftp://www.google.com ==> ftp://www.google.com

However, clicking links with at least one capital letter in the protocol opens the browser to a malformed URL:

Http://www.google.com ==> http://http//www.google.com
HTTP://www.google.com ==> http://http//www.google.com
Ftp://www.google.com ==> http://ftp//www.google.com
