Re: [Full-disclosure] extension for Firefox to force HTTPS always?



So one example is that you are in a wifi cafe and you want to browse
sites which may be available on both http and https. One example is
when you browse google calendar. By default you will get http even
after logging in over https. It doesn't really matter anyways and I
should just code this up for myself. I was just wondering if
something already existed...that whole code reuse concept...you know
:-/

I just wanted to clarify that I am looking for an extension that will
rewrite all encountered HTTP references in Firefox to HTTPS. I would
already have a firewall or some other layer7 filtering device blocking
unencrypted traffic. The addon "Better Gmail" does something similar
to this, with the "force HTTPS" option, but not exactly...

What should this hypothetical extension do if it automagically redirects
http: to https:, but the target server is something that is only listening
on port 80 because it doesn't have https: enabled?

https://www.cnn.com just sorta sits there for me.
