Weirdness trying to set languages on https://google.cctld

Description

If one goes to

https://www.google.ca/

There is a link to set the language for that search to French.  It points to:

http://www.google.ca/setprefs?sig=0_VGU9XptdHS-3T_Vh7N8Y6oZGXLI=&hl=en

But if the user clicks it, they will be bounced to the https://encrypted.google.com homepage.  Should try sending http://google.ccltd/setprefs to the equivalent url in HTTPS instead?

This is partially addressed in this commit, but the user experience is still going to be weird, especially for people who are not logged in.

We might have to partially or completely retreat from using encrypted.google.com if we want this to really be smooth.

This is now fixed in both stable and development releases.
