When someone visit website , and that website configured TLS to be useless and vulnerable to MITM (not checking if there is "Protocol Support" and "Cipher Strength") then this is real flaw of HTTPS-Everywhere to pass this as secure connection.

E.g to make this very clear:


This is an F website and allows MITM due to insecure renegotiation. But when you visit the website while HTTPS-Everwhere enabled it will not read it as insecure connection or even showing yellow sign that the connection is not encrypted (by the lock browser).

So whether this HTTPS-Everywhere flaw or TBB , something is wrong here.

Seems the HTTPS Everywhere folks don't think this is a thing they can fix: https://github.com/EFForg/https-everywhere/issues/17851#event-2309447045
