The idea is to spot urls of the following form easily: http://www.ebay.com:firstname.lastname@example.org/abc/?122345 Also, maybe allowing an option to have the status bar to always show the web site in the status bar, even when the address bar is missing. Reproducible: Always
Note that HTTPS mode displays the name of the web site, but unsecured mode does not, so this should be extended to HTTP and FTP protocols.
Severity: normal → enhancement
Firefox already keeps usernames and passwords out of the address bar, but this idea could still be useful. I've seen this idea mentioned elsewhere but I don't know where there's a bug on it.
