Help! Who Here Knows Firefox Really Well??

I just upgraded to Firefox 10, and it seems to be allergic to URLs and stuff!

The location bar doesn't have the http:// prefix, so if I copy that to make links, they're borked. Plus, when I hover over a link on a page, I can't see the URL anywhere! (I'm used to having it show up at the bottom of the page.)

I'm looking for fixes, but I'm not finding them!

HELP! I want to know where links are before I go to them! I want to be able to copy and paste URLs without having to type in the protocol prefix manually!

ETA: OK, I found the URL hover ... it's floating off at right bottom. Still can't find the solution to the http:// in the location field.

This entry is also posted at Dreamwidth. Comment at either location, as you prefer.

Hmmm... I can actually copy an URL with and without the http prefix and the links work fine for me.

Are you using the RTF editor and letting it make the links for you? I hand code mine in HTML, and when I pasted the URLs into the code, they showed up without the prefix.

I found an answer on CNET, eventually.

Hm, I'm glad you did because I didn't get shit of your last comment...

I think the new FF has built in Http prefixed there. Its gotten a bit slammed because I think when people are trying to do HTTPS it breaks :(

Well, this is supposed to be the latest Firefox! (And today when I started it up, I didn't get Firefox fussing at me about being out of date.)

Actually, https:// was working as I expected. I first discovered this when I did the post about John Scalzi's offer re Planned Parenthood. The donation link for PP worked (because it was https) but the link to Scalzi's blog didn't.

I eventually found a fix for it on CNET.
