If you’ve upgraded your Mac to OS 10.10 Yosemite and you noticed that Safari now just gives you a general, top level web address (IE eBay.com vs. eBay.com/xxx/xxxx/xxxx), there’s a quick solution to get the real addresses showing again.
Just go to Safari > Preferences > Smart Search Field
Check the box “Show full website address”
That’s it! Now you can go back to being the productive human that you’re used to being.
