Do I really need it in Firefox after so many built in privacy in Firefox!

Yes! The privacy protections are to protect you from tracking. HTTPS Everywhere insures that when possible your connection is encrypted between you and the site you are viewing, and that the resources that site loads are also encrypted.
- by Psythik, a month agoRated 5 out of 5Firefox now has HTTPS redirection built-in, so this add-on is NO LONGER NECESSARY. Check your Options to enable it. The setting is at the very bottom under "Privacy & Security", called "HTTPS-Only Mode". The new browser setting does everything that this add-on does, except natively.
I want to thank the Electronic Frontier Foundation for providing this add-on for many years until it was finally supported natively! Your job here is done, but please don't give up the good fight! There are still many more battles to be won in the privacy realm. Keep up the great work.
