Currently my preferred browser is Firefox as it seems to conform most closely with W3C recommendations, making the initial design of a website a solid base to start from. (Accommodations can be made upon completion of a design for other browsers). To me, this seems like a sensible order of working.
Recent versions of this excellent browser have shipped with the default set to show “trimmed” urls in the search bar. Therefore it now hides from view “http://www” & “https://www”. I understand this from a general user interaction. Joe public doesn’t need to see the delivery style of the site. However, as developers this can be useful information.
Open Firefox. You’ll need to open up Firefox’s configuration. You will be presented with a warning asking you if you are sure that you know what you’re doing? None of us can be that sure ;-) so click “I accept the risk” and continue.
in the url address bar type: browser:config
Accept the risk as we need to get things done
Search for “trimURLs”
Locate the following…
if true click it to toggle it to ‘false’
Now your url address bar will show the full url for each website.

Resize your browser window now to see the x and y pixel co-ordinates change ;-)
