    Where is the official source to download the Firefox extension https finder? Its no longer listed at Mozilla's extension pages. I found this google page, but I don't know if I can trust it. -https://code.google.com/p/https-finder/downloads/detail?name=httpsfinder_0.89.xpi- I think I remember reading something about it's development being moved to GitHub.

    If you can't read the source code, then uploading the XPI to VirusTotal may help. Malware is extremely unlikely to be hosted in Google Code or Github anyways, due to public exposure (and vetting) of their source.

    Do you know where i can get the extension at on GitHub? I found the page on GitHub, but did not see an option to download the extension.

    I believe only the source code repository is moved to Github. Downloads and issue tracking remain on Google Code. So that link you had is correct.

    Ok, thank you. I will just use it. I scanned the extension with Virus Total, and it did not have any hits.
