Is it just me that finds Mozilla's 'Lean More' link rather ironic?

Just updated to Firefox 91 and looking in the ‘whats new’ section which contains the following;

HTTPS-First Policy: Firefox Private Browsing windows now attempt to make all connections to websites secure, and fall back to insecure connections only when websites do not support it. Learn more.

Clicking on the ‘learn more’ link reveals this:

HTTPS-Only Mode Alert
Secure Connection Not Available

You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of is not available.

Learn More…

Maybe this is a roundabout way of proving to you that the system works!!


Hovering over the Learn More link shows should be a secure page, but clicking on it serves an insecure link. This is what I see:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I disabled the HTTPS Everywhere rule for and the page loads properly now. The link works in Chrome with that same rule enabled, so it’s apparently conflicting with Firefox’s new implementation.
