Where are the zeroes added -- what's the new URL?

If you open Firefox's Network Monitor in the lower part of the tab before trying the address, can you see a redirect or other explanation? Either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > Web Developer > Network
  • (menu bar) Tools > Web Developer > Network
  • (Windows) Ctrl+Shift+e

When you reload the page, Firefox should list the request and if it is redirected, in the Response headers (usually displayed on the right side when you click a request line), it would indicate Location: followed by the new address.

There is no data in the Web Developer > Network console or any other debug console. The string is appended even before I press <enter>. E.g., when I type "https://151." as soon as I type the dot (.) then the zeros are appended in the following manner, "https://151.0.0.0" with the cursor still positioned to the right of the first dot. This doesn't seem like browser behavior, however, I began observing this with 66.0.1 and several other co-workers are experiencing the same behavior.

It seems to be some kind of new suggestion. I notice it changes after I press the first period (screenshot attached). If it appears in the address bar, you probably tried to visit it once before.
