Barnes & Noble ruleset triggers MCB

Reported by: cypherpunks Owned by: pde
Priority: Medium Milestone:
Component: HTTPS Everywhere/EFF-HTTPS Everywhere Version: HTTPS-E 3.4.1
Severity: Keywords: httpse-ruleset-bug

Reviewer: Sponsor:


Using Firefox 23.0.1 with HTTPS Everywhere 3.3.1, the Barnes & Noble website does not work properly. Specifically, visiting the home page at works fine, but visiting pages like fail, in part at least because images pulled from no longer load. Disabling HTTPS Everywhere fixes the problem. Alternatively, disabling the "Barnes and Noble (partial)" ruleset also fixes the problem.

BTW, I have incorrectly flagged this report as applying to HTTPS Everywhere 3.4.1 because this bug reporting system doesn't seem to even know about the current 3.3.1 release.

It also breaks the functionality on some book pages.


1) Load this page:

2) Next to "Other sellers" click "Used" (or any other option)

3) Expected behavior: Displays list of used copies for sale

Actual behavior: (Nothing happens)

4) Disable HTTPS-Everywhere rule for "Barnes and Noble (partail)" and reload page

5) Repeat step 2

6) Expected and actual behavior: Displays list of used copies for sale


  • HTTPS-Everywhere 3.4.1
  • HTTPS Finder 0.85 (in case that matters)
  • Firefox ESR 17.0.8 (with many add-ons)
