If I chose one and I started writing with host address, it doesn't fill in protocol until I press enter, which is problem, if I want to change some part of this url. If I start writing with protocol, everything works ok. Example: url https://aa.bb.cc/xxx I start writing 'aa', whole url appears in list but when I want to change xxx to xxy, https:// disapears, so I have to fill it in again. If I start to write 'https://aa', list is the same and I can edit any part of url and protocol ramains where it should. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. url https://aa.bb.cc/xxx 2. start writing 'aa' 3. choose from list one and try to edit it Actual Results: protocol part of url disapears Expected Results: Either protocol part should remain or protocol should not apear in the list. I would prefer first possibility.
Michal: Could you retest autocomplete with Firefox 0.9?
Firefox 0.9.3 (from Debian) and it's still the same. I tried vanilla 0.9 and it did not help either.
I see the same problem... while "hiding" the "http://www." part can be useful to directly read the actual website name, I feel it souhld be "remembered" by Mozilla anyway. Ora maybe https urls should have yellow BG anyway, to be quickly identified even if they don0't show the protocol name.
Firefox 1.0, still reproducable
Still reproducable with Firefox 1.0.3 (OS X) and 1.0.2 (Debian i386)
Bug 233229 is a similar problem in Core/Location Bar.

I don't have the privs, but the bug is not Linux-specific, I've confirmed it both on Windows and FreeBSD.
I can confirm this on Windows 2000 and XP using Firefox 1.5 Beta 2 as well. It also occurs on SeaMonkey on all platforms [bug 233229].
Bug 233299 is now marked fixed, but it doesn't seem to be easy to port over to Firefox. Yay for forking.
I think this is the same bug that causes the following, quite annoying behaviour: If I start to type an address where the part after http://www. begins with t or p and then choose the url from the combobox list using arrow keys, it 1) omits the www. part and more annoyingly 2) substitutes ttp:// or p:// for http://, depending on the first character typed. Probably does the same for other protocols, too.
This was fixed on trunk and branch by bug 320181.
WORKAROUND: The Autocomplete Manager extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=2300) includes a bugfix for this.
