The HTTPS rule for appears to break a lot of the JavaScript functions on the site. Clicking certain buttons and links results in errors in the JS console and little else.

Yeah, I had a bash at updating it, based on how things now are, but I couldn't get past the javascript issue for the login box.

My code is at if someone else would like to punt on it?

The options for users are to disable HTTPS-Everywhere for Etsy and then enable HTTPS on the site once logged in. Not log in. Or... just not use it.

I know the login functionality breaks (that is, clicking the log in button does nothing). Anything else?

Well, that's a big chunk of the use case of the site. That means you can't buy or sell on there, only look.

The login overlay is presented via javascript, that is being loaded, but Im wondering if there's some permissions issue which causes it not to run that code once it's tricked in to being a different protocol. My Javascript-fu isn't good enough (read: nonexistent) to work it out.

The login functionality breaks when you're coming from, but not when you're coming from

Yeah, the site works fine via HTTPS if you go direct, but that, I do not believe, is in anyway impacted by HTTPS-Everywhere.

I'd like to either fix the functionality of HTTPS-Everywhere for or remove the rules for etsy, so that the site works for all users, as currently it does not.

Barn, I'm merging your changes into master, and taking the additional step of removing the securecookie directive, because that looks quite inappropriate for this ruleset (any site that sometimes redirects back to HTTP is liable to break if it can't see the cookies that have been flagged secure).

In the 3.0 branch, I'm just going to disable this ruleset altogether until we like what we have in 4.0development releases.

This possible fix in devel (and disablement in 3.0) should be released shortly.
