Hello, Does Firefox "un-cloak" cloaked domains and reveal only true URLs?

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.net.au remaining in the address bar in INTERNET EXPLORER and SAFARI (desired result).

When I type in uworlds.net.au the content (at uworlds.partnerconsole.net) is displayed with uworlds.partnerconsole.net remaining in the address bar in FIREFOX.

Do you know why there is this difference? Thank you.

Thank you very much. I tried Safe Mode and used the Reset option, so now uworlds.net.au remain in the browser address bar, which is great. Thank you.

I'm not seeing this change of the URL on the location bar in Firefox.

Note that the http://uworlds.partnerconsole.net page is opened in a frame on that page.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
