We decided the action when the function `w3m' is interactively called
as follows:

  (1) When a URL-like string is detected under the cursor, the
      function `w3m' displays the prompt to make a user edit the
      detected string.
  (2) Otherwise, it tries to load the home page.

This decision is caused by our laziness to reduce key inputs.  If you
want to choice the page, you can type "M-x w3m RET g URL RET".

Your demand, however, is quite understandable that the function `w3m'
must display the prompt everywhen it called interactively.  Then, I
installed the new user option `w3m-quick-start'.  Its default value is
t, so that the function `w3m' does not display the prompt when any
URL-like string is not detected.  If this option is set to nil, the
function `w3m' always displays the prompt.

Could you try the CVS version?
