Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0
Build ID: 20120825192204

Steps to reproduce:

I went to google.com and searched from the search bar. I have also tried using Firefox's built-in search bar. 


Actual results:

Searches are not encrypted by default.


Expected results:

Searches should be encrypted by default. It seems that Google has moved from https://www.google.com/ to https://encrypted.google.com/ I'm no programmer, but I believe this is a security risk, as Firefox was supposed to use https by default for Google since Firefox 14. One of our major privacy features is now gone.

Yes, I have also tried using safe mode. No changes. Website info reports that the connection is not encrypted.
Severity: normal → major

This is a bug only with Ubuntu's Mozilla builds. I will contact them ASAP and see if they can fix it. Bug does not occur with builds from Mozilla's site.
