User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Build ID: 20150511103818 Steps to reproduce: I entered "user:firstname.lastname@example.org" into the address bar with no scheme (i.e. no "http://"). Actual results: I was taken to a Google search results page with "user:email@example.com" as the search term. Expected results: I would expect Firefox to assume http (or better yet https) and make the request to host.com with the provided username and password. Is it not a security concern that my credentials are passed on to Google? It has become habit not to include the scheme when browsing in general (typing "facebook.com" doesn't search Google for "facebook.com") so neither should "user:firstname.lastname@example.org".
Version is Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu 38.0 (canonical - 1.0), as pre-installed with Xubuntu.
