Firefox - Configure To Show Full URL
It would often frustrate me that the URL bar in Firefox would not show the
https:// at the beginning of URLs.
This is because, sometimes sites are only available on
http:// and one may have a cached 301 (permanent) redirect, and would be redirecting to
https:// which would not load.
Whatever the reason, if you are like me and would prefer just to see the full URL in the URL bar at all times, then follow the steps below.
about:config into the URL bar, and accept the dragons.
browser.urlbar.trimURLs into the search bar, and change the setting to
false as shown below.
Now close all instances of the browser and re-open. You should now see the full URL in the URL bar.
