     As noted previously:
	1) Firefox should not be used without NoScript, and
	2) NoScript allows the user to specify sites for which it will
	   force the use of HTTPS.

     AFAIK, NoScript doesn't discriminate among individual pages, only
by host+domainname.  It does allow the use of wildcards in the names.
