Whatever the website I visit maybe be, the full website URL is never shown. For example when I visit Facebook it shows "m.facebook.com" instead of "https://m.facebook.com". This also happens for websites using "http://" instead of "https://". I know that in the PC version of Firefox this can be fixed by changing the "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" setting in the "about:config" page so that the URL will be completely shown whatever the website may be. I have tried this in Firefox for Android though, but it doesn't work. The "about:config" page just displays a blank white page instead of any settings. Is there any way for me to fix this? P.S.: I use Firefox for Android on my tablet. I don't know what is the case for phones.

Hi Nikolas

With mobile devices (typically mobile phones) having smaller screens and websites that are still http being flagged up, the website address is displayed in a slightly shortened form.

If you really need about:config, this can be found in the Beta and Nightly versions of Firefox for Android, but please appreciate that changes there may lead to a total loss of your bookmarks and passwords and that some preferences are baked into the GeckoView engine when the app is complied.
