Firefox removes port number from pasted URLs

When I paste an URL with a port number in the address field of a new tab and press return, then the port number gets removed.

Example: I paste "http://localhost:5707/typo3" and press return Firefox then tries to connect to "https://localhost/typo3/", which is SSL and has no port number.

How can I disable that behavior?

This happens with Firefox 84
