(In reply to comment #7)
Comment 4 contains several possible solutions. One common characteristic of
them is that user should not be forced to type "http://", this protocol should
be assumed by default.

Additionally, as web-developer I would prefer browsers to submit exactly string
typed by user anyway (i.e., without transformations such as automatic adding
"http://")--just to have full control of input data, though this is secondary
thing.

Primary thing the bug is dedicated to is usability for user--he should be free
to not type "http://" since this protocol is usually assumed by default.
