Description

>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 47, 32bit, ID 20160229030448
STR:
1. Launch new profile. Open http://www.rp-online.de/ in 15 new tabs.
2. Open new window.
3. Open http://www.rambler.ru/ , http://www.youtube.com/ , http://www.rp-online.de/ ,
   close other tabs in that window. Open new tab in that window (Ctrl+T)
4. Close Firefox. Launch Firefox. Make sure that the window from Step 1 is focused
5. Focus urlbar on a New Tab page (Ctrl+L)
6. Press Ctrl+PageUp, then Ctrl+L, then Ctrl+C as fast as possible
   (probably "Ctrl+Tab, then Ctrl+L, then Ctrl+C as fast as possible" is OK too)
7. Press Ctrl+F, then Ctrl+V to paste copied string somewhere (e.g. in Findbar)

AR:
 The pasted string is "www.rp-online.de"

ER:
 The string should be "http://www.rp-online.de",
 because I may want to paste it in some chat or in bugreport on bugzilla.

Workaround:
 As this is one of the many breakages brought to us by "trim url" 'feature',
 it can be temporarily fixed by setting pref  browser.urlbar.trimURLs -> false

That "100% str" stuff was supposed to mean that the bug occurs not because of my specific install
Summary: Location bar fails to copy correct url if I switch to pending tab and select urlbar value (100% str) → Location bar fails to copy correct url if I switch to pending tab and select urlbar value (clear profile)
