What is HTTPtoHTTPS?
HTTPtoHTTPS is a Firefox add-on that automatically converts http links to https (or vice versa) on the current page and refreshes it. It was created to overcome certain restrictions when accessing Facebook outside HTTPS.
This is the story behind the add-on: Because of certain restrictions I could not use Facebook outside HTTPS. Ok, fine, no problem. But whenever someone posts a link and I click on it, Facebook does its redirect thingy which always uses HTTP. So every time I have to manually type in https:// just so I can view the original link. Well, NO MORE! I said, and so this add-on was born. Hope somebody finds it useful also.
HTTPtoHTTPS may not be safe to use and it requires some risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.
HTTPtoHTTPS has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
