Description

The "Help > Report Web Forgery..." function of Firefox 28.0 (running under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS), results in having a "Untrusted HTTPS connection", instead of being directed to the usual "Googles Phish Report" URL. Instead of being redirected properly, Firefox warns:

"en-us.phish-report.mozilla.com uses an invalid security certificate"

As it turned out, disabling the HTTPS Everywhere 3.5.1 add-on solved the problem. The user should be redirected to:

https://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/
