Feature request:
release a Firefox mobile compatible version of the https everywhere addon

I tried installing the addon in the latest betaversion of fennec (b5) and it is currently not compatible. It would be awesome to increase the potential user base by providing a mobile version. It seems that at the very least there is the ability to do do some code sharing, attested by the fact that multiple complex plugins ie. adblock plus offer mobile versions. Perhaps it's just a compatibility flag.

Hi Sagi,

check out the firefox-mobile branch of mikeperry's repository,


IIRC it may be working, but it definitely needs new chrome for the mobile browser. I'm sure Mike would be keen to receive patches for that :)

Older Fennec bug is issue #1506, but that work is probably long-since rotted in both HTTPS Everywhere *and* the Fennec code.

See also issue #2471, specifically addressing the out-of-process bits required for Fennec support.

Mike, how out of sync is your branch with the mainline of HTTPS Everywhere? How far along is the work? I work on Firefox core, and would like to help out here if I can.

Ignore the bit about #1506 - that's about the Tor Button, not HTTPS Everywhere!

Let's use #2471 for this. I already did the groundwork and the UI. It is electrolysis that is our blocker now.
