    I've been using this for a couple of days now and now and then the pages load slower, but so far it doesn't interfere too much..

    Just click on your Extensions or Add-ons in your Browser options and it will tell if you have it. I've been using it on a couple of Browsers for a few days now and I notice web pages loading a little slower, but the content of the sites works just fine...Still checking it out..

    Hi Mike! I don't see it in my Extensions or add-ons, but I have it and it's driving me crazy. Did you down load it or did it come with a Firefox update. How can I get rid of this HTTPS?? I hate it!!(n)
    Thanks Mike!!;)

    Why do you find HTTPS so bad when it provides a reasonable guarantee that one is communicating with precisely the website that one intended to communicate with no middle man intervention?

    It very well might be good, but when I click on email from TSG, it won't take me to that thread because the Gmail is HTTP from TSG and it changes it to HTTPS and won't get me here. Sorry if I'm not explaining this well. I hope this makes sense. I think this started happening with last firefox up dated??
