An extension to automatically use HTTPS protocol when possible. When the extension is enabled, it switches insecure "HTTP" pages to the secure "HTTPS" alternative when the server supports secure communication. In oppose to the popular HTTPS Anywhere extension, this one does not have a predefined set of sites that support HTTPS protocol, instead, it evaluates the unsecured site upon the first usage.

Source code and bug tracker are available at:

1. If automatic switching to HTTPS protocol for a website causes it to look broken, use the toolbar popup to add the page or the hostname to the exception list and reload the page in the HTTP protocol.
2. You can place your mouse over the toolbar button to get more info about the color codes that this extension uses. Also, make sure to read the FAQs page.

Risk impact

HTTP to HTTPS requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

HTTP to HTTPS has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Es funktioniert ohne Probleme, aber bei localhost muss kein HTTPS:// davor, weil das sowieso nicht sicher und im Öffentlichem Netzwerk ist.
