Show protocol portion of URL in Firefox 7+

Firefox 7 is out now.

One of the "fixes" is that Firefox now follows Opera and Chrome is hidding the http:// protocol portion of URLs in the address bar.

As a security professional I enjoy being able to easily see what protocol my browser is talking (http/https/ftp) in any given tab/window. You can restore the previous functionality by navigating to about:config and setting:
browser.urlbar.trimURLs = false
