Description

Tor Browser ships with a search plugin for Microsoft's bing.com. Searches using this plugin (made when you select bing as the search engine in the search bar) go via http rather than https.

Given that bing seems to support https - the search URLs still work after replacing http with https - Tor Browser should use this by default.

Personally, I've noticed that when bing has https enabled, I cannot see the images returned using a startpage search, somewhat problematic.

We'll remove bing from 4.5a4 on (see commit 0cc27667bfb1cc641f7abc87c3d9e252c4ca0162). Thus, this is a WONTFIX.
