Http://localhost/ is not clickable in preview

I’m not totally sure if this is a bug or by design, but local hyperlinks (or any hyperlink with no dot in the server address) are not converted into clickable links.

Steps to reproduce

Write the following addresses in a markdown document: and http://localhost/. Then open the document in the viewer.

Expected result

You see both URLs, but only the one to is clickable.

Actual result

Both URLs would be expected to be clickable.

Ironically, in the editor, both URLs are underlined and can be ctrl-clicked to open in an external webbrowser. Also, the link http://www.localhost/ does become clickable…
