Firefox Add-on: Unencrypted Warnings posted January 2016

I never understood why Firefox doesn't display a warning when visiting non-https websites. Maybe it's too soon and there are too many no-tls servers out there and the user would learn to ignore the warning after a while?

I don't know, so I wrote a few lines and made the add-on here

unencrypted warnings

Just drag and drop the .xpi in your firefox. You can also review the ultra-minimal code in index.js and build the xpi yourself with Mozilla's JDK

Well done! You've reached the end of my post. Now you can leave a comment or read something else.
