Firefox 7 trimming http:// from address bar

Update: Firefox now includes the "http://" when you copy-paste from the address bar.

Firefox recently decided to remove the "http://" from the URL bar, similar to how Chrome has it. The problem is, when copy-pasting a URL into somewhere that requires the http://, you have to manually add it.

You can easily change it back. Just go to:

about:config
Type trim into the filter until you can see this line:

browser.urlbar.trimURLs
Change it to false by double-clicking it. No browser restart required.
