Firefox 8.0 Homepage not getting rewritten to HTTPS

My homepage in firefox is set to "", while in older firefox builds this would automatically get rewritten to https, in the new 8.0 build, the homepage will come up as the unencrypted flavor.

Hitting the home button shows the HTTPS version. Also doing a search from his page redirects to HTTPS, but on initial Firefox Launch, the home page is HTTP (not secure). Also when taking advantage of Google's Instant search results, this too will go to the HTTP (non secure) version of the page.

while playing around with this bug more, it has been noticed that this is caused by the prefrences setting for the homepage.

My homepage is set to "" and this causes firefox to open up with the HTTP (non secure) version while if my homepage is set as "" it works fine and rewrites to HTTPS.

This sounds like it is probably a duplicate of bug #3533, which is fixed in the development branch releases (eg, but not in stable releases yet.
