Could it be disabled? You may have noticed that any disabled extensions appear at the bottom of your list on a grayed background:

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons > Extensions category

If it's completely gone, you might need to reinstall: https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere


The forum software detected your Firefox as version 17. Is that correct?

Version 17 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release. Is something holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 21? Please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds.

If Help > About Firefox shows Firefox 21.0, you may need to clear the preference that is misreporting your version number. See: How to reset the default user agent on Firefox.

Q. Why isn't HTTPS Everywhere available for download from addons.mozilla.org like most other Firefox add-ons?

A. We felt that the Mozilla privacy policy that applies to downloads from addons.mozilla.org is somewhat less protective than the privacy policies of the organizations that develop HTTPS Everywhere, and we prefer for HTTPS Everywhere users to be protected by our privacy policy. This decision could change in the future as Mozilla's privacy practices evolve or as we re-examine the details of the current Mozilla policy.
