Why would it make a difference whether you use an HTTPS or HTTP connection to capture screen content?


If the server forces a secure connection via HSTS then it is not possible to force an open HTTP connection. You can check the SiteSecurityServiceState.txt file in the profile folder for references about this domain and delete nes related to this domain to see if that works.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:preferences page.

In most cases, the website's server will force you to connect to HTTPS instead of HTTP if it's configured to support it. You can't override that.

However, it should make no difference for screen capturing, since the page contents should load identical.
