Windows 7: Facebook Clears Persistent HTTPS Setting Without Warning

Facebook Clears Persistent HTTPS Setting Without Warning


Despite recently starting to allow users to opt for HTTPS on all sessions, Facebook clears the setting with no warning when people try to access most apps.

Two weeks ago, the social networking site proudly announced a new "secure browsing" option located under the Account Security menu which would allow people to enable HTTPS for all future visits.

However, at the moment, third-party apps don't not work via HTTPS, because they load external content into the page.

This content cannot be signed by Facebook, therefore, the secure connection is broken each time an HTTPS client opens such an app.
