It seems for some URI you need to include http(s):.
For a "www" the board will do it automatically.

Code: Select all
[url=www.example.com][/url]


(Automatically) changes to:
Code: Select all
[url=http://www.example.com][/url]


Code: Select all
[url=ffsf.aaron-kelley.net/download_8.html][/url]


Is broken.

Code: Select all
[url=http://ffsf.aaron-kelley.net/download_8.html][/url]


Works.

Tested and it works for me. I'm guessing the "other websites" were all HTTPS. Try safe mode. Sounds like an extension is interfering with the code that correctly copies HTTP URLs.

Alternatively you can set this to false: browser.urlbar.trimURLs

they were working a few days ago but now they just aren't working on Mozillazine anymore. as you can see here: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2977811 the url didn't become a link in that post. it is formatted the same way as it was when I used them before but now it is being stubborn
