How to display the http prefix in Firefox 7

Reading in Engadget I discovered an article where they teach us how to put two of the new options that it includes back as before Firefox 7.

One of them is to show the prefix again http:// in the address bar. Well, for this, all we need to do is type in a new tab about: config, promise we will behave and search the filter:

browser.urlbar.trimURLs = true

We double-click on it and set it to false.

browser.urlbar.trimURLs = false

The other option that we can enable is not to highlight the domain of the URL. So in the same tab of about: config we seek:

browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled = true

we do the same operation and set it to false.

browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled = false

Ready, with this we will have everything as before… I don't particularly like it, but hey. Already passedor add these tips to the Article Tips to Optimize Firefox.
