I am noticed that text widget accepts invalid URL.

Steps to Repro:-
1) Select text widget from the “Appearance–>Widgets”
2) Click on “Add Media” button.
3) Click on “insert from URL”.
4) Add a invalid URL like “jnwfjkewwwnnwfkjfkjewkjfnkje”.
5) Click on “insert into post” button.
6) Click on “Done”

Seems like the error handling is not working properly. When you type an invalid URL the browser console is throwing an error but the user is not notified for it.

Also, the user is allowed to click "Insert into post" even there is a console error and the URL is invalid. So I confirm the reported bug by @nirmalcm
