How can I show the URL scheme name (e.g. "http://" or "https://) in the firefox address bar?

After the latest firefox update (7.01), the URL scheme name (e.g. the "http://" part in a typical URL, like "http://www.google.com/") was removed from most of the URLs that I have input. The result of this is that the address bar shows only partial information about the URL (e.g. showing only "www.google.com/" and not the desired "http://www.google.com/").

Although this is redundant for the typical user, I would like to know (as a more advanced user) how to always display the full URL with scheme name included. If there is none, I suggest that you include an option to display this or to reinstate the scheme name altogether in the next update.

I regretfully installed iLivid and have had the problem many others have experienced with the irritating searchqu. I have followed the many helpful threads on Firefox Help and through disabling add-ons, using add/remove programs etc, I have manged to just about get rid of it. One annoying aspect remains. On my Firefox page, next to the usual web address field, is another search box that is pre-filled with 'iLivid Web Search'.

Does anyone know what specific part of the removal process will get rid of this? Thanks.

As of a few days ago, almost every web site I visit, after the page opens, another screen opens with firefox asking to allow another site to open. It is an ad of some sort as I have opened 1 or 2 to check them out. I've been on a site with a catalog with multiply pages to go thru and every time I hit the next page, another pop up. I've checked off the options box to stop pop up's, but that doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

After upgrade to FF7.0.1 (on Win7 Pro-64) I sometimes see a strange behaviour: while downloading a couple of files to the same folder, FF does occasionally change to another download folder - without request. I.e. I save files to folder A, suddenly FF offers me folder B. After choosing back to A, a couple of files later FF offers folder G, and so on. While working 10 - 12 hours with my PC, this happens once or twice a day. It doesn't depend on the file's format, happens with docs, videos, pics, pdfs, zips and other formats.

Since I upgraded to Firefox 7.0 in the last month, my CPU has been running at 100% or higher off and on. I've turned all my extensions off (Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flashblock, Ghostery, Leechblock, WOT), and it's still doing it randomly. It gets to the point where my CPU is running incredibly hot, and I've started forcing the software to close before it can get too overheated.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!!!

This problem cropped up around version 5.0 and has persisted. Basically: when I middle click (often accidentally) on an area that doesn't contain a link, Firefox goes foreward to the previous page viewed in that tab.

What I mean by "foreward" is that it is treated like a link navigation to the previous page even when there is no link to click and using the back button returns me to the page I came from.

It is worth noting that this problem will also cause Firefox to return to pages viewed under "Private Browsing" mode even after returning to normal mode which is, at worst, a security risk.

Is there an option that needs to change for this to stop happening? If there isn't I would like to file a bug.

I use Firefox 7.0.1 on my desktop using Windows 7. As of yesterday I can no longer view my messages in Gmail when I click on them using Firefox. A window comes up, but it just shows the subject line, not the rest of the message. I can see them in Outlook, and I can see them in Gmail from IE or from my Android.

I have been having this problem for quite some time now and it finally bugged me enough to post about it. Anyway, on the Gawker Media sites (specifically Deadspin for this example) embedded videos from Viddler show a "Video not found" error message. However, if you get the link from the video and watch it directly it works fine. Also if you go to viddler.com and watch any video, they work fine. It appears as though something is messed up in how Firefox handles the embedding of the videos. Not sure if it is an HTML5 thing, a Gecko thing, or what but it works fine in G0ogle Chrome.

Here is a link of an example of what I am talking about: http://deadspin.com/5833185/espn-is-airing-a-tv-commercial-for-grantland and if you get the link for the video and go to it directly it works fine: http://cdn.static.viddler.com/flash/as3/full-publisher.swf?ref=&key=8ed093e8 The actual link was: http://www.viddler.com/embed/8ed093e8/ but I had to change it to http://www.viddler.com/player/8ed093e8/ based on advice from: http://www.viddler.com/forums/bugs/7491/

I am running Firefox v7.b1 and I tried it both with and without my add-ons enabled. My Flash and all other plugins are up to date. I had the exact same problem with Firefox v6 as well. Please fix this issue. Thanks
