User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:80.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/80.0

Steps to reproduce:

I mistyped "http//example.com/some/URL".

Actual results:

It redirected to www.http.com//example.com/some/URL

Expected results:

I should have recognised an initial "http" or "https" and given an error.

This can be considered a minor security issue. I mistyped a private URL and the information was submitted to an unknown third party.

Component: Untriaged → Address Bar

This is similar to bug 1181081, for http instead of https. Likely both should be handled at the same time.

Severity: -- → S3
Priority: -- → P3
See Also: → 1181081

This issue no longer occurs on 86.0 release and latest Nightly 88.0a1. I believe it is safe to mark it as duplicate of the bug mentioned above.
