    I’m trying to set up the proxy blacklist. For example, I want to block youtube, so I add various entries:

    http://www.youtube.com/*
    youtu.be/*
    http://www.youtu.be/*
    youtube.com/*
    youtube.com

    It’s set to capture ETH00 (the WAN side) and ETH01 (the LAN side)

    Now if I try to go to youtube from firefox, it should be blocked but it isn’t… but I see that firefox sends me to https://www.youtube.com.

    If I try to go to youtube from IE, it sends me to http://youtube.com (no https) and it is successfully blocked.

    If in IE, I type in https://www.youtube.com, I get through.

    Next time in IE, I enter youtube.com and it sends me to the https version, which isn’t blocked.

    What is happening here and how do I fix it?
