Something like ForceTLS

TSL hackers break SSL encryption
FireSheep extension

Given that many sites do not routinely use HTTPS, can we have something like the ForceTLS FF addon? I have always assumed that KM 1.6.0 supports TLS1.2, but when the site doesn't use security we're still shafted.

We don't need too many bells and whistles in such a feature:

p.s. I'd not bother with the overlay or anything and just switch it on for browser sessions that need quality encryption e.g. banking.

All needed for that is knowing the GRE pref and crating a toggle button.
I do not know the GRE pref. sad smiley

Means if I knew more I'd simply try to force the highest possible TSL version that a page supports when needed.

I would not bother with the extension's list or any other added option like privacy mode.

Edited to remove dribble.

TLS1.2 is not implemented in Firefox yet.

TLS 1.1: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=565047
TLS 1.2: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=480514

NoScript implements some security features of ForceTLS.
But I only read that and find NoScript extension hard to use.
