Description

After #15852 landed on master (commit 1b41636c9351b46bbcb2094a65c65a4407b60a37) extensions.torbutton.https_proxy and friends are no longer. I am getting now:

NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getCharPref]

while the SSL Observatory code is trying to access extensions.torbutton.https_proxy etc.

This part needs to get adapted accordingly.

gk: So the following have been removed:

extensions.torbutton.https_proxy
extensions.torbutton.https_port

I'll be testing from the latest nightly-hardened, let me know if this is incorrect.

This is correct. There might even be more prefs that got removed and are important for HTTPS-E (probably for its SSL observatory code). I have not checked that closely. Just saw the issue mentioned in this ticket in the browser console.
