Description

Scribd's HTTPS site (https://www.scribd.com/) glitches when you attempt to log in. I'll type in my user credentials, hit enter, and I'll see a spinning wheel for a split second next to the login button, and nothing will happen. We should disable the Scribd rule in the default build.

Summary: Scribd HTTPSScribd's HTTPS support is terrible/buggy/broken

Sigh.  Lack of site-wide HTTPS support on Scribd is a serious privacy and security problem for their readers.

Negres has been doing a lot of work trying to get HTTPS Everywhere to cope with Scribd's buggy HTTPS deployment, but we're going to need someone at the company's end to help.  I'm CCing their webmaster address in the vain hope that that reaches a human who can forward this to their engineers.

I'm disabling this HTTPS Everywhere ruleset for the time being.

Sigh again. No help from scribd.
