If I press enter or click on one of the links in the automcomplete dropdown, then all is fine. If I cursor back through the address or modify it in any way, then the protocol information is lost and Firefox attempts to load the URI with http. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit an https site 2. Type some of the site's hostname into the location bar to bring up the autocomplete dropdown 3. Cursor left through the address or modify it to point to a different page 4. Press enter to visit the site Actual Results: The autocompleted address changes from https to http and the site quite possibly returns a 404 Expected Results: The modified (or cursored-through) address should have retained its original schema
Mac bug 233229.
Bug 233229 seems to be about a similar problem when "autocomplete best match as you type" is enabled.
Confirmed using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050817 Firefox/1.0+. This might be a minor security hole.
