Do you see this with FF 3.5 beta? 
 http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html

what do you mean by identify information?
why do you expect the address to be restored?  did it do that in FF2?

I guess what is meant that "Show site information" gets disabled. This still happens with FF 50.1.0 (Arch Linux 64-bit)

I would personally not want the address to be restored automatically. Site information would be nice to have and maybe the address could be restored somehow through the (i) button.. might get too complicated, though and a niche use case.
