Google search forcing https. No turn off option anymore.

Postby Alzarius » Fri Aug 16, 2013 1:22 am

If it's not one thing, it's another. Google now seems to be force redirecting ALL search to https with the option to turn that off no longer available in settings. This of course allows the huge pile of Google text ads to be plastered all over the search since https isn't yet filterable. I have found no known way to force Google to stay on standard http. Do you know of a way to block these ads? I tried using the old standby
127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 pagead.googlesyndication.com
to the hosts file. However, it does nothing now. I don't know if it's because of https or because they changed their ad serving servers.

it seems to be random.

If i clear my cache and cookies and click my google bookmark again, it remains as HTTP, but yes it appears they are going to roll out HTTPS as default, once again taking away choice from their users.

Good call bzg.

However, noscript prevents the modern UI of Google when it blocks Google. Is there a way to continue blocking Google Instant but retain the modern look and feel of the site please?

To force Google (https) to be redirected to Google (http), put this in your hosts file:

216.239.32.20 google.com
216.239.32.20 www.google.com

works like a charm. Found on dslreports.com.

I didn't think the hosts file could redirect to or from http/https??

Working for Dutch Google as well. Thank you very much!
Google gave me a message about SSL-filtering being disabled each time I did a search.
Removed with the following filter:
remove divs/spans with text: <div id="nosslsrc"*>

Thanks ZombyWoof for the info.
Using your filter phonemes is good, but seems if an Image
search is done it comes up again there. Wonder why?

use this instead.

Add CSS to all pages:
#nosslsrc, .nossln {display:none;}

Thanks Jeff. Web search is good, but image search fails to show the images.

ps - Only 3 images show, then is seems to stall.
