Netscape router "http://www.routerlogin.net/" used to work and now FF FORCES a HTTPS connection which my local router doesn’t suppor for a LAN wired connection.
This is a LAN wired connection to an on site router that OF COURSE does NOT have any built in SSL support. FireFox now prevents my Netgear recommended connection method from working by forcing a HTTPS URL when attempting to connect to my router. If I manually correct the HTTPS and make it HTTP, FireFox just forces it back to HTTPS when I enter it. Yes, I know how to use the direct IP, but I would like my router to work as Netgear intended. (like it used too a few FireFox versions ago). YOU broke routerlogin.net.

There are some domains like .dev in the HSTS preload list, but I don't think that .net is included. I don't know if NoScript can force a secure connection, so you will have to check that.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
