Description

From a post to the HTTPS everywhere mailing list a while back:

It was recently discovered that *two of the features of FastestFox*, (*awesomebar enhancement & linkify text urls*(i haven't yet explored the problem with this specific feature, could be unrelated to https-everywhere)) *were not working*.
A trial and error disabling of every addon present in the test system was done. It was* found that the awesomebar enhancement worked when https-everywhere was disabled*.
FastestFox *does a google search as characters are typed into the Location Bar and lists the possible alternatives to the entered text. It is *suspected that enforcement of https by the https-everywhere addon is the root of the problem*

I think this is very likely to be the same issue as these two:

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/3190
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/1574

I wonder if we can get the FasterFox devs to clone RequestPolicy's code?
