Problem with accessing Pinterest on Firefox

Pinterest is a social networking site that allows people to "pin" pictures, drawings, recipes, etc. to their own "Boards." On the webpage, many of such pinnable items are shown with a menu bar including the option to "Repin It" to your Board. When HTTPS 3.1 is enabled for Pinterest, the RepinIt button starts that action but then spins endlessly without doing anything. Disabling HTTPS Everywhere 3.1 for Pinterest in the options section allows the actions to succeed. This has been a major source of concern for Pinterest aficionados.

I cannot do any research on this bug because Pinterest is blocking me from creating test accounts. Thanks guys. Unfortunately your site is going to remain broken for millions of HTTPS Everywhere users unless we can debug what's going on here.

MB thought this might be an HTTPS-E internal issue, but I'm not yet persuaded. I was finally able to make a Pintest account, and I see this with Live HTTP Headers:

I'm disabling the ruleset now.

This should have been fixed with HTTPS Everywhere 3.1.3, which disabled the Pinterest ruleset.
