Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1261182
enable doesn't work once disabled via HTTPS Everywhere menu
Last modified: 2016-11-21 10:53:30 EST
HTTPS Everywhere, if disabled via the button menu, will not re-enable through the button menu.
The cure seems to be to open about:config, and change the preference manually.
This bug does not seem to exist on Windows.
Tested on Fedora 22 with SeaMonkey, without and with a fresh profile.
As requested in https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-15186 , I checked using mozilla-https-everywhere-5.1.1-1.fc22.noarch and firefox-40.0.3-1.fc22.x86_64, and the bug still exists with a fresh Firefox profile. BTW, I'm guessing the about:config preference you're talking about is extensions.https_everywhere.globalEnabled, since enabling it manually works after restarting the browser (but not immediately, as the button menu normally would).
Yes, that's the one. The pop-up menu said it was enabled after toggling that preference, but the icon did not change back to its normal color. I suppose I should've tested more thoroughly.
I'll forward this upstream.
I think you want the Status to be ASSIGNED rather than VERIFIED (which would indicate you already had a bug fix)?
My mistake. I assumed "verified" meant "able to reproduce; verified as a bug." Status changed.
Works for me in Firefox 50 on Fedora 25. Please test the F23 build: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2016-1f3ae23d36
Works for me with mozilla-https-everywhere-5.1.4-1.fc25.noarch and firefox-49.0.2-1.fc25.x86_64 on Fedora 25 (I seem to remember having noticed this being fixed a while ago, but forgot to report back). Also works with mozilla-https-everywhere-5.1.9-1.fc24.noarch and firefox-50.0-1.fc24.i686 on Fedora 24. Unfortunately, I don't have a F23 machine anymore to test on, sorry.
Thanks for testing. I'll close this for now. If it's still happening on F23, anyone is free to reopen.
