Urlbar no longer shows address of some sites, shows site/company name instead
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 4.4.2; Tablet; rv:47.0) Gecko/47.0 Firefox/47.0 Build ID: 20160502172529 Firefox for Android Steps to reproduce: Visit certain sites like: github.com or addons.mozilla.org Actual results: Urlbar shows site/company name, I.e. Mozilla Foundation (US) while on addons.mozilla.org. Expected results: I would like to see the URL of the site instead of the name. This worked fine in all releases of FF until recently. Screenshot attached.
Even though I can select/click the urlbar and it'll show the site address that way, I could still see this being a security issue with some sites, when at a glance you see a company name which may look legitimate, all the while the actual address could be something different, phishing sites would love this.
Unless I'm not understanding how this works, couldn't a malicious site just lie about their site/company name? Or have I got this all wrong?

Hi, it's quite likely an add-on or theme is causing your issue, please try Safe Mode https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode

I don't mean to be snooty, but, 1, I'm using Android. Safe mode? and 2, All addons & themes are off/non existent. Dan.

I'm sorry, I'm still learning how to use Bugzilla. I see the needinfo, but am unsure what you need.
