Hi everyone.
Can anyone shed some light on this please. Do I still need https Everywhere when using Firefox 93.0?
I have been using Firefox since I owned a computer. For the past decade I have been using HTTPS Everywhere from the Electronic Frontier Foundation. However, since the release of FF 93.0, Firefox itself upgrades http to https connections where available. Reading Mozilla's documentation it is still unclear if FF upgrades ALL connections to https, meaning third-party cookies and content also. Https Everywhere does upgrade everything coming to my computer whereas I cannot determine if FF does?

I don't think that extension has been useful for a while now. Firefox has an integrated "HTTPS Only" mode since version 83.0. Connection will fail if the site doesn't support HTTPS, but you are given the option to add exceptions as needed.
