How to fix Safari 6 on Mountain Lion that doesn’t show the full URL in the address bar unless I click it?

The address bar of Safari all of a sudden has stopped displaying full URLs, and is instead only displaying the hostname part of URLs. The full URL is only shown when I make the address bar active again as shown below.

Can anyone tell me why this is and how I can restore the old behavior? I do have SafariStand installed, but it never did this before today.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I would recommend that you uninstall SafariStand and use GLIMS which is a better Safari enhancement app.

  • While Glims may be more powerful, it also rewrites Amazon and Ebay links in a way that I'm not comfortable with. I prefer the honest and totally free SafariStand. – Jeroen Dec 14 '12 at 10:23
