ff2 issuing http requests when https is forced

Forcing https is to prevent leaking over http, so how is it relevant if it gets parsed or not?

Sorry, I was quite tired when I wrote that post.
Since I use HTTPS cookie promotion, I didn't consider the leakage argument, forgetting that secure cookie management is not enabled by default.

You're right obviously, this needs to be fixed for Fx 2.

Side note: Fx is the "official" abbreviation for Firefox, and this is a bug report: moderating accordingly ;)

Putting this here for a quick heads up only.

I'm getting all 443 alla da time now for forcing https on my couple of secure examples :-)

Giorgio, not to bug (no pun intended) but did this bug get resolved? Any new word on it?
