Incompatibility with HTTPS-Everywhere?

Reported by Rebecca Menessec | September 27th, 2011 @ 09:32 PM | in Bug Crushing

Provide the following information:

  1. NT6.1 (Win7) SP1 amd64
  2. Mozilla Firefox Aurora 8.0a2 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0a2) Gecko/20110927 Firefox/8.0a2)
  3. 0.1.6pre
  4. en-US

For some time now--since 0.1.5?--I've noticed that clicking Install on us.o takes me to a view of the actual code (intentional?) before popping up a [re]install dialog box. With HTTPS-Everywhere, at least as of 1.0.3 today, enabled, there's no prompt to install; just the code view.

I have a sneaking suspicion it's something to do with https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=677643 , which was resolved in HTTPS-Everywhere 1.0.3, at least in theory. Disabling the H-E us.o redirect rule, leaving H-E enabled, restores the install prompt.

    It's possible. I had HTTPS-Everywhere disabled for most of the last three-ish weeks on account of it causing problems with... something. A few sites, I think--not other add-ons. Then I caught the discussion of mutating URIs crashing Firefox, and decided leaving it disabled was the best course of action.

    I think I had 1.0.1 enabled and was able to install scripts from us.o at the same time, but I can't swear the us.o redirect rule existed / was turned on / didn't change on the route to 1.0.3 / other.
