I'm in China trying to jump the GFW (great firewall) using a program called Ultrasurf (proxy).
I can access the Facebook homepage - no problem. But as soon as I try logging in, it directs me to an https login site and then gets blocked. I have the same problem with Twitter and other (usually) blocked sites that use https.
I was just wondering if there was anyway to force these sites to use http instead of https. I'm not worried about security, because my traffic is already encrypted through the SSL that Ultrasurf uses.
If there's anything else that might be causing this problem, I'd love to hear it. :-)
