Description

I had been having trouble with a wide variety of sites loading slowly or not at all, mostly news sites. I noticed via the status bar that one factor these sites all had in common was attempting to load assets from the s7.addthis.com domain.

Disabling the HTTPS-Everywhere redirect for AddThis solved the problem.

It seems to me that a lot of stuff can load correctly over HTTPS from that domain (and we might lose a lot of coverage within the AddThis rule if we excluded it). Can anyone give a particular example of a URL that won't load promptly from there?
