Firefox: The newest update to Firefox just launched today with a slew of new features, but one of those happens to include a shortened URL bar. Thankfully, reader David has a simple solution.
- In Firefox’s URL bar, type in: about:config and agree to the pop-up message.
- Search for: browser.urlbar.trimURLs.
- Double-click or right-click and select
toggleto change the value to false.
Now you’ll get the full HTTPS or HTTP in the URL so you won’t be confused on whether you’re viewing a secure site.
