I mentioned this on the list a few months ago as I have the same problem.
As I recall no useful suggestions were forthcomming, so I've just worked
around the problem by manually editing the URLs when needed.

I intend to look into using proxypass with virtual domains on Apache to
see if that will fix the problem. However in my mind it would be more
consistent  to make all hyperlinks in M0n0wall relative, this used to be
the case prior to version 1.
