Description

Set Safe security setting and go to

http://deb-multimedia.org/

It will go to the HTTP version even if there's a ruleset for it https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/atlas/domains/deb-multimedia.org.html

Also the ruleset for it doesn't showup!

ie when I click on the HTTPS Everywhere popup.

Tested on Tor Browser alpha with 2018.4.11 version.

Also some websites work, for example http://archive.fo but others like that one don't work which is very strange.

Can't reproduce with a stock install of TB alpha unfortunately.

Severity: NormalMajor

Fortunately I was able to record the error,

So, this happens with a clean, new Tor Browser alpha? Or do I have to use something else to be able to reproduce this problem? On which OS does this happen?

No, but I experienced it with the latest TB alpha that I use everyday (I didn't change the browser's config in any way, no additional addons installed, ..etc).

Or do I have to use something else to be able to reproduce this problem? On which OS does this happen?

I use Ubuntu. I have been fortunate to record the error message in the browser console when this happens (comment:4) since I can no longer reproduce it with that same TB install.

Happened again :(

One thing that I noticed: When it works fine, the "Rulesets version for EFF (Full): 2018.4.18" appears in the addon's popup. When this problem happens it no longer appears.

Not OP. Seen this on Windows 10 only, and nothing - on other machines. BTW, where to check what the latest ruleset update is?
