- by Firefox user 14158621, a day agoRated 2 out of 5The extension does as advertised, but I can say with certainty that it is inherently inconvenient.
There are some websites with a certificate that default to http, but once loaded as https it does not work whatsoever. I encountered far more 404 errors than I would have if I hadn't installed this extension.
Another thing bothering me is that HTTPS Everywhere will try to load a website in https even if the certificate has expired which makes that all the more pointless since an expired certificate is as good as no certificate whatsoever.
It was widely recommended to me by security and privacy enthusiasts and I can state with certainty that I do not recommend it, it is far more cumbersome than it has worth and usefulness under those circumstances.

But instead of trying to visit http site after disabling, it tries https site, which gives certificate and connection errors. Then we have to remove letter s from address. Also does not allow us to make own rules.
- by dannyk08, 15 days agoRated 1 out of 5I'm not sure to what extent all requests are made https BUT some website take forever to load and some even crash: Costco item details page crashes when trying to set everything to https. I removed all extensions and added each add-on one at a time and this was unfortunately the culprit.
Great add-on, just wish it was a bit better about resolving non https assets
- by Firefox user 12795816, 19 days agoRated 3 out of 5It creates some issues with certain sites. Even if we add them to exceptions, they still can't launch correctly. Disabling this extension fixes it, so despite this great functionality, it limits the experience on the web.
In my opinion, an extension which such stellar recommendation should be better then that, so I'm dissapointed. I'm turning it off.
