As mentioned in previous answer, Tor is based on Firefox, which by default trims URLs, and won't show the schema part on the URL bar if the site you're browsing to uses plain HTTP protocol.
There's a (hidden) setting to disable that:
- Go to
about:config (type that into the URL bar).
- Firefox (the Tor Browser) will warn you of being about to modify advanced settings, in a way that's enough to scare some novice users. Just confirm that you'll be careful, if you really want to take the risk; just don't do it if you don't trust me ;-)
- Then search for the
browser.urlbar.trimURLs setting, and double click it to switch its value from
false (it will become bold indicating that the default value was changed; you can undo this change any time).
- With this sole change the URL bar (as well as the URL tooltip that appears at the bottom of the window when you hover on links with the mouse) will always display the full URL.
I don't think this will make with your search results look less "funny", however.
