[Chrome] https everywhere forgets disabling of rules, no way to remove a rule entirely

Description

I added a rule to include reddit for the https redirect. I didn't realize reddit doesn't support https.

Now, every time I fire up Chrome it redirects reddit to https. If I disable that rule by unmarking the checkbox then reddit works (after I reload the page), but next time I fire up chrome the issue is back.

I don't see any way to remove the rule entirely, and the options button when I right click on the icon is disabled.

Uh-oh, I will forward this on to the person who created the custom rules feature.

I merged vijay's pull req, so this should be fixed in the next release.

Sorry for the necro, but I am now experiencing exactly the same issue under the latest Chrome x64 stable release (Version 38.0.2125.104).

This time it's not Reddit, but steamcommunity.com. While that page does support https, it breaks my other extensions which (apparently intentionally) do not work with the https prefix.

Like the OP, I want HTTPS-E to remember my preferences even after restarting the browser.
