I hadn't heard anything about this, so I tried Googling.  The only thing I've 
found so far is reference to an optional add-on / plugin ("HTTPS Everywhere", 
iiuc) that would allow the browser to look only at ssl (https) pages.  Am I 
missing something?

(Well, I didn't read what I found carefully or completely, I did see some 
snippet of text that said that, in some respects, it would work (or use some 
methodologies) of NoScript, which *might* mean that there might be a way to 
override the plugin manually to view non-SSL pages.)

(Not to say that SSL everywhere wouldn't be a good idea, but, until "legacy" 
websites are converted, we may be missing a lot of the web.)
