Stone-D;

I too have problems with the browser thinking that http://https.. is invalid. Fortunately, Scott gave us an alternate syntax: try using http://https// - that should work, at least on that page. I find that some sites code their links in a way that shortcuts the host name (the top level name) by using inferred naming instead of fully formed names. (As in "./this_sub_page" instead of "http://xyz.tld/this_sub_page".) Such shenanigans will throw a browser error, usually a 404. Proxo can rewrite these links, but trying for a heuristic approach is not a walk in the park, to put it mildly.

HTH

Oh, and thanks for the half-SSL work-around. Let me relate my "face-palm of the day". Whenever I"m on the road, I can't use my mail provider's IMAP, it requires me to be at home on my static IP. But they do provide a web-based client, so I'm not totally cut off. However, when I compose something (using the web-based client), and if I want to quit out of the composition form (not hit Send, I've changed my mind and want to go somewhere else), I get the unsightly dialog box "Are you sure you want to leave this message unfinished?" That was one of the first things that got filtered by Proxo, years ago. But when HTTPS hit town, I was in deep kimche, thanks to CURL (and thanks to JJoe for pointing me down that path of investigation). The double-slash gets me out of that particular jam nearly every time.

That, and other sites like those which insist on using SSL for hosting images, as well as the big boys who "take your security seriously", a great majority of them just can't be bothered to keep their Certificates up to date and/or pointing to the correct CN. I realize that it's rocket science and all that, but for Pete's sake, those site admins are getting paid like rocket scientists, aren't they? ??? Or does their calendar have more way more vacation days than mine?

Anyways, that's why I have to leave half-SSL on and running at all times. Your work-around has just made my day! Thanks!!
