Why is the "http://" being stripped from the address bar?

Posted

The address bar no longer displays the "http://" prefix for websites on any tab. Although, "https://" is still displayed.

The address bar no longer displays the "http://" prefix for websites on any tab. Although, "https://" is still displayed.

Chosen solution

The protocol (http://) has been removed from the URL in the location bar for http:// pages only. https:// pages will still have the protocol. This may be confusing to some users. There's also a known bug where if you copy the URL after selecting it from the awesome bar dropdown (but before loading the page) it won't include the http:// part.

Users can revert to the old behavior by setting browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false in about:config

  1. type about:config in the Location/URL/Address bar and press the Enter key
  2. if you see a warning, accept it (promise to be careful)
  3. Filter = browser.urlbar.trimURLs
  4. double-click on the pref in the lower panel to toggle it to "false" OR right-click on the pref in the lower panel and choose "Toggle" to toggle it to "false"
  5. close the about:config tab

I noticed that you have the Google Toolbar installed; please take note of the following.

Google decided that they will no longer produce the Google Toolbar for Firefox 5 and newer version. It is best to move on to other alternatives than to try any "hacks" to the toolbar that may or may not perform in the future. Future versions of Google toolbar will only work with IE7-9. Google Toolbar is not available on any other browser, even Google's own browser.

Does not relate to your question, but...

You have multiple old Java Console extensions that Java did not clean-up during updates. You need Java Console only if you do Java programming/development or debug Java applets on web pages. You can see them in Add-ons > Extensions, but you can not remove them from there. Removing them will not affect the functioning of Java on websites. You can manually remove them, if you do not do Java development work to avoid future, possible problems/conflicts:

Your old Java Console extensions:

  • Java Console 6.0.21 {CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0021-ABCDEFFEDCBA}
  • Java Console 6.0.22 {CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0022-ABCDEFFEDCBA}
  • Java Console 6.0.24 {CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0024-ABCDEFFEDCBA}
