Firefox: Display Protol Prefix of URLs in the Address Bar

To display back the http/https protocol prefix in address (URL) bar of Mozilla Firefox…

  • Type “about:config“ in the address bar, press enter and agree with to the warning.
  • Set “browser.urlbar.trimURLs” preference to false to display back the protocol prefix.
  • If requested, set “browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled” value to false to remove the highlighting.

Now the http:// or https:// will be shown when a website URL is typed in the browser location bar.
