Default URL protocol when typing "//" in Opera Beta 60.

  • Until very recently, I used to paste URLs beginning with "//" in the URL bar, and it correctly redirected me to the "https://" version of the URL. Now (Opera 60, although I'm not sure if before I had Opera 59 or earlier), it redirects me to the "file://" version, which is never what I want. I imagine there's other people who wants that, but I don't 😞 Is there a way to change that behavior? Or are you planning to go back to the old one?
