Uhm, the search plugin loads

It redirects to https, but the problem is that the https version doesn't load at all in Nightly

Switching the URL in the search plugin wouldn't solve the problem on Nightly, only on Beta and Release.

The URL loads in Chrome and Firefox Beta, where security settings are less strict.

Are you in touch with them? Any chance they can fix the certificate problems on their side?

For reference.
* This works in Beta, but fails in Nightly because of the certificate issue.
* This fails in Beta with a VBScript error
I realised that Nightly does not open the site at all, while Firefox 55 (release) does.
I posted a question about this:
and they point me to the same SSL Labs site issues.

I already sent a mail to the site telling them about the SSL certificate issues, let's see if they react.

Fixing it for Release+Beta would be already a step forward.

To clarify. This would fix at least the issue on the Beta/Release channel (I need to ask for approval), hopefully they'll fix the certificate in the meantime.

Bug 1396927 - Switch Diec2 (Catalan) search plugin to https

Sounds like the scope of this fix is fairly limited. Let's try uplift for beta 10.
