Some sites won't open with "http" but with "https"

From some days I am experiencing this strange problem in Firefox.
i am unable to open some sites with the "http://" address in Firefox
it don't shows any error message or anything just a blank page.
but if i edit there url to "https://" sites open normally.

this is really annoying. please someone suggest a solution.

Do you have the https everywhere add-on installed in Firefox? If so, disable and/or remove it and restart the browser to see if it fixes the problem.

Do the certain http sites work sometimes, and not others? Or is the behavior the same always at those sites? Try running FF in it's Safe Mode and see if the behavior continues

Thanx for replying.

It is the same behavior for those sites. other sites works normally.
and I've also tried safe mode but it's still not working.

Try one of the trouble sites in Windows Safe Mode with Networking. See if it works there.

remove the "open" and "merge" entries from context menu?
safe to assume its impossible to remove the "open" and the "merge" entries from the context menu? I figure if i want to open or merge them i would simply double click. Clutter and redundency in this vein dont suit me :P

Pinning "New" and "Open" Word document to start menu
Using Word 2007, I am unable to pin the "New" and "Open" Word Document to the Start Menu. I was able to do this in XP and Vista. I go to "All Programs" and can load Word but cannot find the options new/open. In Word I go to "Word Options" and it is not listed there either. Thanks.
