Firefox uses https instead of http

I'm using Firefox ESR 45.4.0.

I'm trying to access my development server (Django runserver) which only supports http, but Firefox now insists on rewriting http://dev.server.address/ to https:. I've been able access the dev server using http for years and years, but today, after trying to access my dev server when it wasn't running, which I think made Firefox try https instead of http when http failed, Firefox absolutely refuses to go back to http.

I've set browser.urlbar.autoFill to false.

I've set browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed to false.

I've gone to the history bar and asked Firefox to forget about the server.

Firefox still persists in rewriting http to https for this server, and I'm getting mightily frustrated.

Hi, as many of us long time Firefox users, I have a ton of bookmarks. I mean a TON! I need a bookmark checker for my release. Is there one from Mozilla? Is there one offered external? Or is this an area that I have absolutely no chance of resolving without selecting each book mark to validate that it works?

Thanks for your time and energy!

I have many several attempts to change my home page to a different, but every time I restart Firefox, it reverts back to the previous one. I have tried several articles within Mozilla Support (I've lost track of them), but the matter persists. I even went as far as editing prefs.js to edit browser.startup.homepage to the new home page, but is insists on going back to the previous one.

My firefox runs extremelly slow, except when in safe mode. I tried many times disabling or even removing all add ons, and it is still the same slowness. Something more must be happening when I start in safe mode, other than just disabling add ons. I'm getting mad. Please, anyone can help me?

If you guys could share your font settings for Khmer or give another solution, that would be great.

Thanks in advance!
