It's even worse -- now I need to switch this setting twice at the beginning of every session in order to disable it, or else no HTTP loads yet the switch is ostensibly off.

Still having issues on FF 37.0.2 + HTTPSE 5.0.3. Using the switch even once breaks the browser (see comment 1) each time you start it, not randomly at some occasions & not at others, as was the case for some time. Removing HTTPSE makes it possible to cope with the problem, you just need to visit a https-only site, like Wikipedia, and then everything is back in order. If you choose to use the switch twice at the beginning of every session instead (HTTPSE isn't restartless), you can't let another person use your browser without explaining how to unlock it.
