HTTPZ About

Fat-free hardenable opportunistic encryption for Firefox.

There are numerous similar extensions out there, but HTTPZ is different because it is not smart: it is Zmart. The following summarizes how it works with the default settings:

When you are about to navigate to a site over HTTP, that request is aborted and a new one is started over HTTPS. If that new request results in an error, it is automatically redirected back to HTTP. If navigating to the site over HTTP throws an error too, HTTPZ does nothing more then. Otherwise, if it succeeds, the host is added to the ignore list, and all subsequent requests to it are ignored by the extension for seven days.
When you navigate to a site over HTTPS by yourself, or because of some external factor (like Firefox filling the address with https:// based on your history and so on), HTTPZ ignores that request, regardless of the outcome.
When you navigate to a site over HTTPS and the servers redirect you to HTTP, the extension notices this and automatically adds that hostname to the list of sites to ignore.
