I have the browser.urlbar.trimURLs switched to TRUE but still as you can see in the screenshot it shows the complete URL with the protocols. I do not want this, I want it to hide it and only show the main link like youtube.com instead of https://youtube.com

}

  1. urlbar-input{

}

Hi Amay, I am not aware of any method to hide the https:// for secure addresses. It does seem that with the lock icon there, it's not critical to show https:// if you aren't showing http://.

Mozilla recently started up a new "Ideas" site at https://connect.mozilla.org/. I think if you have time, it would be a good idea to post there to get into the current feedback stream.

http can be trimmed, but not https.

Devs are planning to fix it, probably the next year.

So, just to confirm, there is no way to hide the redundant HTTP or HTTPS from address bar at the moment?

It even shows the WWW, no way to hide any of the three?

http:// is hidden by default; https:// is not.

There is no setting to hide parts of the host name; Firefox always shows the entire server host name. Firefox does show the base domain name in a contrasting print color for slightly easier spotting, but it definitely could be made bolder for easier spotting:

I think it used to hide WWW also but now it does not, is there any flag for that?
