Recently discovered I couldn't access the website After assuming the worst and running virus and spyware tests, but coming up empty, I turned towards my add-ons and the process of elimination revealed the problem to be with HTTPS Everywhere.

This is the error message I receive when HTTPS is enabled:

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few


If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network


If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure

that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

In addition, I'd mention that it appears to block the site whether the rule is engaged or not.

Just a heads up.

I think Negres's changes in master fix this, and we will be merging those into a stable release shortly.
