Canonical issue like your website open with non www and www and /index.html but all have same content, so you should use 301 redirect other pages to www(.)domain(.)com

Canonical is the majors issues while you not aware about it. Like when you want to view your page before the domain propagates, it can sometimes cause undesired effects. If you main page or home page is not resolved by the canonical then it may always problem to rank in major search engine. so keep in mind that you resolved by fixed and also you used 301 permanent redirection which is helps to maintain your site by canonical issue.
