I do have "HTTPS Everywhere" Firefox plugin version 2017.8.31 (so it
seems very recent), but it displayed as "obsolete" ("obsolète" in
french). I'm using Firefox 55 on Fedora 26. It seems like the plugin
has to be updated to use the new WebExtensions API.



"No. HTTPS Everywhere has already been migrated to WebExtensions.
We're unable to switch HTTPSE on Firefox over to WebExtensions until
Tor Browser rebases to FF 52 ESR, as I already stated: #7389

"Currently the main blocker to WebExtensions deployment on Firefox is
a secure signing mechanism for the self-hosted version. See #9958

In short, it doesn't work :-)
