This is the situation I am in. However one other piece is that by default if I just type www.gog.com or even just gog.com into the Address bar it will try to redirect to https://www.gog.com
. I think this is something in my settings possibly, but it hasn't bothered me enough to find out :)
Thanks, it apparently was in my history from 2011 :) Don't know why it would use that to decide to default to use https://www.gog.com
Because if you have a specific domain (www.gog.com, in this case) with https:// in your history, Firefox will default to the secure one rather than the non-encrypted http:// one (usually a sensible idea, in my opinion). Trouble comes when a site decides to move their secure access site to another subdomain and people still have the old (same-as-unsecure) address in their history.
If you only type gog.com, Firefox will decide that www.gog.com is a perfectly good alternate (despite the fact that this is not necessarily always the case), then find the https version in your history, and send you the wrong way again (to www.gog.com, which doesn't respond on https).
Please use https://secure.gog.com
if you want a secure session. And, yes, as was said, remove everything starting with https://gog.com
from your history.
I dislike that they did that. Now, I have to go back through my bookmarks and change them so that they actually work, without having to first go to secure.gog.com. It's annoying, really.
