Updated ruleset partially breaks stackexchange even with mixed content rule disabled

Severity: Keywords: 3.4.5 ruleset breaks stack exchange sites

HTTPS Everywhere (Firefox Extension)
Version: 3.4.5
Firefox: 26.0 64 bit build for GNU/Linux (Mozilla's own build)

Relevant rules:

  • Stack Exchange (partial) is enabled
  • Google APIs is enabled
  • Stack Exchange (mixed content) is disabled
  • Quantcast is disabled

I can view some Stack Exchange sites partially but on others I get a Firefox "get me out of here" warning. All sites worked fine until I restarted Firefox. Firefox was not updated, though - only HTTPS Everywhere. Based on I would have assumed this is a known issue to do with mixed content but the only tickets I could find were closed as fixed and, moreover, I have the mixed content rule disabled already.


I can view this page but I cannot view the images inline. I see the alternative text description. If I open the image as a page-in-itself, I can view it fine. If I try to visit this page, I get a warning dialogue. (Translated) the title is "No trust for this connection" (sorry - I guess that's not the exact English equivalent). For clarification, it starts (roughly) "You have asked Firefox to connect securely to, but we cannot confirm that the connection is secure. As a rule..." etc.

I am guessing this is an HTTPS Everywhere issue but, if not, please let me know if you know where I should report it instead.

I don't know if the following bug, reported as, is related to this one or not.

In my case, I also can't login using my SE identity in order to set up an account on another SE site. I get as far as confirming I want my information shared across to that site but then I just get a login failure.
