About this Add-on
One of the most effective ways to improve your privacy on the web is to opt for encrypted communication whenever possible. By blocking plain HTTP web traffic by default, this extension gives you the power to decide exactly which unencrypted URLs, if any, you will permit your browser to make requests to on your behalf.
Compatibility with HTTPS Everywhere:
HTTP Nowhere has been tested with and works when HTTPS Everywhere is installed. However, when both extensions are enabled, HTTP Nowhere effectively disables HTTPS Everywhere's automatic redirecting capability.
Compatibility with the Tor Browser Bundle:
HTTP Nowhere has also been tested with the Tor Browser Bundle (TBB), and can be used to effectively prevent leaking unencrypted payloads to hostile exit nodes. Note that *.onion sites will be blocked by default since they appear to the browser as unencrypted URLs. To enable them when HTTP Nowhere is enabled, just add the following to your list of Allowed HTTP URLs: *.onion:80/*
- For Firefox 20+, automatically tries https for hostnames entered in the urlbar
- For Firefox 20+, added new option to auto-redirect to HTTPS instead of blocking
- Cleaned up some extraneous console logging
