We have a favicon that highlights blue or green when there is encryption. Your argument is invalid and a poor attempt to hide the inconsistency that is removing http from urls. Anyways, just a pet peeve easily solved by changing browser.urlbar.trimURLs in about:config.

Removing ftp and https is confusing, you and I both know it'd be better if they're clearly indicated, but http is just so common that it's really okay if we decide not to mention it.
But like you said, there's always a pref so people not used to the change can turn it off, and that's why we love Firefox, isn't it?

PS. I think the main reason they do this is actually, you know, [parity-chrome]™. :mrgreen:


I just don't like the inconsistency that's introduced with the change. Call me OCD, but removing http is not saving that much space, especially when there's so much space left over on the right side of the URL bar anyways. It looks like its just change for the sake of change, like you said [parity-chrome]. I am starting to hate Chrome not because I use it, but because it keeps influencing every other browser with its damned weird inconsistencies.

Change the pref browser.urlbar.trimURLs" to false in about:config.
