xampp server is redirecting localhost to https://www.localhost

Can someone shed some light on this? Googling this in multiple ways yielded some discussion about the browser forcing this, but I've turned off any prediction services, specifically:

  • Use a web service to help resolve navigation errors
  • Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar

And I have a single line in my etc/hosts file:

127.0.0.1   localhost

    Why don't you use 127.0.0.1 directly ?
