-Since version 20, Chrome has automatically blocked the loading of insecure
1177
-HTTP scripts and CSS in HTTPS pages.  Firefox version 23 will do the same.
1178
-This is good security practice, but it causes havoc with many sites where
1179
-HTTPS Everywhere can secure some, but not all, of the site's content.

-Before Firefox 23 launches, we will need a more coherent plan for detecting
1184
-sites where we are causing these mixed content situations, and either
1185
-disabling or working around the limitation.  Failure to do so will mean that
1186
-HTTPS Everywhere user experience worsens dramatically when Firefox 23 is
1187
-released.  Success will mean a dramatic improvement in user experience with
1188
-HTTPS Everywhere for Chrome.
