Description

HTTPS Everywhere breaks ScienceDirect articles on Firefox 25 e.g.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0039602813002392

Website returns this error:

"Screen reader users, click here to load entire articleThis page uses JavaScript to progressively load the article content as a user scrolls. Screen reader users, click the load entire article button to bypass dynamically loaded article content."

Page partly loads and is garbled. Maybe the website thinks I'm on a tablet computer?

I tried disabling HTTPS on ScienceDirect but it doesn't appear in the rule set. It continues to load as HTTPS.

Website only works when the addon is disabled or the Rule Set is set to disable all.
