Target version:-


A user reported in IRC that they set their homepage to some address like "http://foobar.onion"

But when Orweb is opened and the Homepage is loaded, the URL is "http://foobar.onion/" (the / is appended). This particular site's web server treats those to paths differently, which is arguably a bug on their end.

But in the interest of compatibility, we probably shouldn't append / to what the user types.

fyi: this is easily reproducible:

1. Set a homepage "http://google.com"
2. Open the homepage
3. See that the url is "http://google.com/"
