The reason most apps dont support HTTPS is because Facebook doesn't provide certificates for applications, this is the responsibility of the developer. Explanation from another Q&A site: Facebook apps are created through iFrame, not FBML as before. As iFrames are embedded websites, the code is hosted elsewhere, the source website must support ...

If you use this https://ssl.facebook.com/ link, it will land on https://www.facebook.com but all links from this site will redirect you back to non-SSL. To enable permanently, Click on Home --> Account Settings --> Account Security and check the HTTPS box.

If you're on Firefox, you can try the Electronic Frontier Foundation's HTTPS Everywhere extension. It uses a customizable list of URL matches to hijack the browser's page-loading process and redirect to equivalent HTTPS URLs before the network request goes out. YouTube is included and enabled by default. Otherwise, you may be out of luck. Chrome doesn't ...

Some browsers, like IE6, show an error when we have non-secure (http) content e.g. iframe, image on secure (https) pages. To prevent this error dialog, Facebook falls back to a non-secure address. See these two StackOverflow questions too IE6 http/https mixed content error and dealing with http content in https pages. Also this option will be disabled in ...

The "DuckDuckGo Settings" are available over HTTP (without SSL/TLS) at: http://duckduckgo.com/settings/?kh=-1 ...as any other page of DuckDuckGo with kh=-1 parameter. And on a "Privacy" tab of the settings page you can change the "HTTPS" setting ("Use encrypted version of the site") to "Off" value and save it in a cookie.

If someone would grab the session cookie, that is the cookie that identifies your session after you've logged on, they could gain access to a site as you without needing to break your password. The HTTPS protocol helps preventing this because it makes it more difficult to see the information passed between your computer and the site, thus an attacker can't ...

There's something about the way this server uses SNI that is incompatible with Java's libraries: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.uni-ms.de So no, our crawler can't talk to it over https. I haven't seen this particular problem before. This one works: http://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.uni-muenster.de/de/ you can see the save I just ...

I'm the sysadmin for LibraryThing and we had a problem with one of our rules in our SSL vhost. Hopefully this should be fixed for you now. I'm very sorry this caused so much trouble.

As of July 2013, Facebook is https by default: We now use https by default for all Facebook users. This feature, which we first introduced as an option two years ago, means that your browser is told to communicate with Facebook using a secure connection, as indicated by the "https" rather than "http" in [the URL] However, the http interface remains ...

About 6 months ago Facebook started requiring SSL for pages/apps. It was clearly announced to app owners. You'll need to get an SSL certificate for your site - I recommend DigiCert

Other than Siva's correct answer via Facebook settings, you can optionally force HTTPS on a variety of sites with an additional browser plugin, HTTPS Everywhere. I do recommend disabling HTTPS Everywhere for Google search services. It tends to have a glitch with the new way Google presents search results without clicking on the search button.

You can't. As of 20 March 2014, Gmail is HTTPS-only. From the official Gmail Blog: Staying at the forefront of email security and reliability: HTTPS-only and 99.978% availability Starting today, Gmail will always use an encrypted HTTPS connection when you check or send email.

I haven't been able to find a way to load Dropbox URLs over HTTP but it is possible to load Google Fonts over HTTPS, and that will prevent the browser from blocking the request. For example: <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

Https is more processor intensive and slower as it is harder to cache etc because everything that is sent is encrypted so you can't share with others. Also encrypted data tends to take up more KB. Its a particular problem if you are encrypting images. People who are still using slow connections may wish to avoid https use.

The transmission of your credit card information does happen over HTTPS. If you use a network logger like the one included in Google Chrome's dev tools, you'll see that the request you send that actually includes your personal information is sent to an https:// URL. However, that is only half the story: the form page where you input that information is not ...

The MiniBar will not appear on sites that use HTTPS. If the url of the site begins with https:// rather than http://, the MiniBar will be disabled. From the MiniBar Browser Extension FAQ page.
