To clarify a bit more, I was incorrect when I said this was the "switch to tab" suggestion, rather it was the "Visit google.com" suggestion that has the incorrect url.

This causes annoyance when sharing links for several internal HTTPS-only sites in work which just 404 over plain HTTP.

Actually, the visit entry has the "right" url, but what you are copying is the inputfield content, that is only "google.com"
Not sure what we could do here, maybe we could get the result from the top entry rather than copying what's in the input field, but that may be even more confusing in some cases (I copied X and get Y).
