I don't think that has anything to do with the script itself. All the
script does is change any occurrence of 'http:' to 'https:' in a list's

The most likely explanation for what you observed is you never ran
fix_url on the affected lists after you changed DEFAULT_URL_HOST to
"www.fmp.com" so their web_page_url attribute still had the prior domain.
