How to stop "Always Connet with HTTPS"
Hello, I have a small issue. A while back I tweaked the settings and prefs of about:config, and in that, I forced Firefox to always automatically access every site with HTTPS instead of HTTP. I did this as an added security feature for a friend, but that was a while ago. Now, I have noticed that she can't acess her e-mail, or a lot of other sites.I already reset firefox, but all that did was reset the exceptions, now its asking for an exception everytime. But thats not the problem even IF I add the exception, the entire Yahoo site messes up. ALL graphics and everything are disabled. All you see is raw Text data and hyperlinks that are all broken. It works fine if I access another browser and it connects normally. But no matter what, it keeps trying to connect HTTPS. I don't really remember what settings I changed, and I would like to revert it back. Any help would be appreciated.

hello bc22889, i don't know which setting you might have switched (there's also a https-everywhere addon), but maybe we should address the root of the issue and why encrypted connections are failing
first please make sure that the date & time is set correctly on your system.
if this doesn't solve the issue (or it is already set properly), could you tell us which error code is shown under technical details on the error message and when you inspect the certificate which issuer information it does contain (see screenshot)?
