HTTPS Everywhere Breaks web page

I have been using HTTPS Everywhere for about a year in Firefox. Both Firefox, and the addons are set to check for updates automatically, and the following versions are installed on my Windows 7 Pro (32-Bit) PC:

Firefox: 42.0
HTTPS Everywhere: 5.1.1

A website I have been visiting frequently for about 2 years no longer works with HTTPS Everywhere (it formerly did work OK, but as of a few weeks ago no longer displays properly, and has forced me to disable HTTP EVERYWHERE).

Here is a link to a page that fails with HTTPS Everywhere:

With HTTPS Everywhere Enabled, both of the above links fail to render the page properly. However, with HTTPS Everywhere Disabled, both links do render the page correctly.

Are there settings I can use to keep HTTPS Everywhere Enabled, that would by-pass certain addresses? That is, in this case, is there a way to set HTTPS Everywhere to be by-passed for all content at ?

My thanks in advance...

The rule "" seems to be responsible for the problem. You can disable the rule easily. Just click on the HTTPS-Everywhere icon, then click on "".
