Description

Google uses 302 redirect to redirect to localized Google for some source IPs. HTTPS Everywhere breaks the redirection.

For example it redirects google.com searches to (receive 302 to http://www.google.com.hk/) but HTTPS Everywhere rewrite the URL to
http://encrypted.google.com.hk/
which does not exist

I have noticed that upon logout of google mail I am occasionally (but not every time) redirected to a GeoIP specific google site that is http. The redirection isn't broken, but it isn't https either.

Here's an example URL:

http://www.google.ro/accounts/Logout2 ... snip ...
