[CHROME] HTTPSEverywhere breaks Basecamp ajax

HTTPS Everywhere for Chrome causes subsequent page loads in Basecamp to fail. The first page loads fine but clicking through to a second page loaded via AJAX and it will fail. The URL changes, new content is requested from the server and the loading UI is started. A JavaScript exception gets thrown and the new content fails to render. Disable HTTPSE and Basecamp pages start loading as expected.

Error: Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token , in application-4cc1453aee6fcde8e1ec921ba2fb37ec.js:31
Browser: Google Chrome 20.0.1132.11 dev
HTTPSE: 2012.5.1

There is also no option to disable HTTPSE only on Basecamp so the only workaround I've found is to disable the extension.

This is a weird bug, because I don't think there are any rulesets that cover, either in chrome-2012.5.1 or master.

Can you see if there are any third party rulesets that might be causing the problem? If not, I'm quite mystified...

In the console I'm seeing:

Applicable rules for util.js:7
Got insecure cookie header: csrf-token=iSL0SU8oKMeprZl3lv...

I don't know if this is a rule or a cookie rule being applied to There are also several entries for

Hrm, I think that message is counter-intuitively indicating that there are /no/ applicable rules for basecamp. The code is here:

I think that the console message you pasted indicates that results was actually an empty list, which is what we would expect. (I will fix this confusing message shortly).

This is possibly due to the fact that AJAX calls won't show up on the https everywhere menu because they're not associated with a window.

In either case, I couldn't reproduce it after making a Basecamp account and visiting a bunch of pages.
