 Currently HTTPS Everywhere redirects this URL :


 to this URL :


 due to this rule :


 Unfortunately the https page that it redirects to is served up by google
 with a certificate for "*.googleadservices.com , googleadservices.com"

 This results in a certificate check failure and no ads being shown.

 Please remove the rule that matches this URL since google isn't providing
 a valid cert.

 To reproduce this problem :
 1. Running Firefox 6 with HTTPS Everywhere 1.0.1 installed browse to
 2. You'll get back a "Untrusted Connection" error page from Firefox (see
 attachment of what it looks like)
