Question

How do I stop google opening as an encrypted url

In the past I have used http://www.google.co.nz as my home page. Once firefox has opened but I want to go to a different site I just edit the start line and change it to whatever I need eg www.fred.co.nz. Now my home page opens to https://www.google.co.nz - when edited it changes to https://www.fred.co.nz which doesn't exist. I could edit out the "s" as well but like everything that is changing on the internet it always seems to require extra keystrokes or mouse clicks and I am getting annoyed with it. Why can't I still have http://www etc as my home page. In other words how do I STOP https: being inserted into my home page as the defaultĀ ? Quite happy in Options to have the choice to make either available and who knows maybe in the future I might want to change to encrypted (but I doubt it).
