Description Bert Freudenberg 2016-05-19 06:23:05 PDT
Typing "http://ftp.squeak.org/" into the address bar used to connect to that server by HTTP. It now erroneously redirects to "ftp://ftp.squeak.org/" which fails.

Expected result: fetch 'ftp.squeak.org' via HTTP as requested.

Note: clicking on a link to http://ftp.squeak.org/ works fine. This only affects manually typed in (or pasted) addresses.

The address bar is a Safari feature, not a WebKit feature.
