This question already has an answer here:

Recently I've noticed that whenever I open a question that has imgur.com-linked images, I get a mixed content warning (and, indeed, imgur links have http: prefix), which is strange since I use HTTPS Everywhere extension for Firefox (which should set all prefixes to https). That also seems to be true for some other sites (which might suggest that it's a Firefox problem).

EDIT: whatever the site configuration, I expect HTTPS Everywhere to replace the imgur-links with their https versions (they do work on their own). Moreover the extension has a ruleset specifically for that site. Isn't it correct and shouldn't that be enough?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It's all good, though it's because they are "hard coded" as http unless specifically edited. You can still access them over https though :) – Zizouz212 Feb 27 '16 at 0:52
  • @Zizouz212: I think the extension should 'specifically edit' them. Does that mean that it edits but browser still shows (the false) alarm? And how do I verify that's indeed the case? – The_Keeper Feb 27 '16 at 1:01
  • No, the link will point to http://i.stack.imgur.com/code, directly. There's been requests around meta for that though, I'm not sure where though. – Zizouz212 Feb 27 '16 at 1:02
  • @Zizouz212: I might be wrong, but seems to me I've never noticed those warning before. Strange. – The_Keeper Feb 27 '16 at 1:04
  • @NathanTuggy: I still wonder if HTTPS Everywhere should handle those. FAQ suggests it should but I'm not sure. – The_Keeper Feb 27 '16 at 4:10
  • @The_Keeper: I think it depends on the specific site configuration; the data might be buggy there. Otherwise, yes, from what I know it should be perfectly capable of rewriting request URLs before they're loaded. – Nathan Tuggy Feb 27 '16 at 4:18
  • Pretty sure the question about HTTPS Everywhere working properly on imgur.com should be asked somewhere other than meta; Super User might work, or Information Security. It's certainly puzzling, though. – Nathan Tuggy Feb 27 '16 at 19:59
  • @NathanTuggy: thank you very much for this suggestion! – The_Keeper Feb 28 '16 at 0:54
