Why is TenFourFox adding a trailing slash to the end of URLs?

As the subject. I can't login to a site because the site won't accept the trailing slash at the end of the URL.

    Which website is it?

    If this is about the URL bar: TenFourFox behaves exactly like Firefox here. You type the URL, you hit enter, the slash is added. Safari, Opera (and the Internet Explorer on Windows) do likewise. If the website doesn't accept that, they have a problem because pretty much nobody except from Chrome users will be able to log in.

    If you mean a saved form or password: Look at Preferences>Privacy>Custom Settings>Remember search and form history (maybe there's something saved and auto-completed when you type in the log-in field) and Preferences>Security>Remember passwords for sites>Saved Passwords…

    The address is http://social.chillifish.com/admin/login

    Firefox on my PC doesn't do it and nor does Safari. The developers of the site say it's my problem and not theirs! I think they should solve it, but it doesn't look like they're interested…

    This URL works fine on all the TenFourFox test systems; it doesn't add a slash. Do you have an add-on that might be interfering?

    That's what they said as well. I restarted in safe mode with add-ons
    disabled and it was still doing it! If it's just me then, I guess I'll
    have to figure it out myself. Thanks anyway though.

    What I observe with TenFourFox: If I type www.google.com and hit enter, a slash is added (that's what I was referring to in my first post). If I type www.google.com/login, no slash is added. This seems to be the standard behavior. Maybe there's a URL autocomplete setting interfering?

    What do you know? It's now working fine… all I've changed is to
    install the MozBar addon!

    Sorry about the (admittedly clever) spam.
