I’m not sure if I understood Jason’s concern, please apologize when I’m OT here.
Instead of ”hides https” I’d say:
Sometimes Safari 7 is silently ignoring https (or forgetting what I was asking for).
There is a different behavior in Safari 7.0.1 / Mavericks, compared to 5.1.10 (on my old Mac’s 10.6.8).
In contrast, Safari 7.0.1 (10.9.1) will silently and without any warning go down to http connection, regardless of (same) extensions or JS settings.
So you have a “secure address / bookmark” but then your log in will be plain.
To increase confusion, same page “reloaded” will very often result in https connection, but a freshly started (or reset) Safari will never. In case of “https” (after the reload) another click at my bookmark will briefly take me to https but then indicate to be http only, again, no warning.
Firefox 26 will always come up with https at my example page, with or w/o “HTTPS-Everywhere”, but giving a warning regarding mixed content (yes, the site also contains“insecure” content).
Is it “https” when the lock isn’t there?
Is it a bug or feature in Safari 7 only?
Is it possible to “force” Safari 7 to use https?
Thanks for reading!
