I am using Firefox 28, on Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro 6,2.

The drop-down menu for HTTPS Everywhere 3.5.1 under the "Tools" menu in Firefox does not appear at all when I hover my mouse over the "HTTPS Everywhere" menu item. When I look at the preferences for HTTPS Everywhere, the redirection rules are all blank. I tried clicking "reset to defaults". It had no effect.

When I try to connect to a site, such as, I get the normal http version, not the https version. If I manually enter, I get the https version.

I tried un-installing and re-installing HTTPS Everywhere 3.5.1, as well as installing 4.0development.15, and 4.0development.16. The problem still persists.

My active Firefox add-ons are:
Adblock Edge 2.1.1
BetterPrivacy 1.68
Download YouTube Videos as MP4 1.7.18
DownloadHelper 4.9.22
DownThemAll! 2.0.16
DuckDuckGo Plus 0.3.16
Firebug 1.12.8
Ghostery 5.2.1
HTTPS-Everywhere 3.5.1
Screengrab (fix version) 0.97.24c
User Agent Switcher 0.7.3

I also use Tor Browser 3.5.4, which includes the HTTPS Everywhere 3.5.1 add-on. HTTPS Everywhere works properly in Tor Browser 3.5.4.

I also tried using HTTPS Everywhere 3.5.1 in Firefox 28 on OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks. HTTPS Everywhere works properly in Firefox on Mavericks.

My active Firefox add-ons in Mavericks are:
Adblock Plus 2.5.1
BetterPrivacy 1.68
DuckDuckGo Plus 0.3.16
Firebug 1.12.8
Ghostery 5.2.1
HTTPS-Everywhere 3.5.1
User Agent Switcher 0.7.3
