By default, the new Firefox 7 hides the “http://” (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) extension in the URL which appears in the address bar once you visit a website. If you do not like this behavior and you do want to see the “http://” in front of the web address, I have got a quick trick to display it!
- Open Firefox 7
- In the Address Bar field, type about:config and press Enter.
- As usual, click the click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button.
- In the Filter field located at the beginning of the page, type locate browser.urlbar.trimURLs and press Enter.
- Locate the Preference (or key) and double click the value so that it goes from the “default” value of “True” to the “user set” value of “False”.
- Exit Firefox and enjoy your web addresses with the “http://” prefix!
- Click OK.
