After a very recent update to FireFox May 2017, the url address bar in Firefox 53.0.2 no longer shows the current URL in the address bar. While a portion of the current URL shows in the "tab" not knowing exactly where you are prevents one from possibly correcting a typing error to get to the right location or being able to copy and paste a web page url into an email or other document. No, I do not want FireFox to be like a phone, or Google Chrome, or any other product!

I want "My FireFox" back!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

My problem may be solved.

I restarted FIreFox SAFEMODE (with add ons disabled) and then returned back to normal, and full URL's were shown in the URL bar. I will continue to monitor, but am thinking it strange that a FF update might have caused this. No new add ons or other changes were made to FF other than the very recent "update" that was run.
