We would like to add a UI in about:preferences to allow users to turn on HTTPS Only Mode for all windows or just for private browsing windows. This could be in the form of a 3-state drop down menu:

Enable HTTPS-Only Mode: [off (default) | pb-only | all-windows]

or, alternatively, as two checkboxes:

HTTPS-Only Mode:
[] Enable in all windows
[] Enable in Private Windows

Here's a link you can use in the UI (just replace the version/os/locale with actual variables): https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/%VERSION%/%OS%/%LOCALE%/https-only-pref

For now, we will use the MDN link, and replace this with SUMO when feature is enabled on Release.
