is there a way that when i copy-and-paste a regular ssl url into the address bar, that Proxo will redirect it to a half-ssl url before the browser fetches the page?
silly me... turns out that if i do NOT copy the httpS part and just copy the stuff following the two /'s, the link works anyway, WITHOUT the httpS crap...

i suspect that's not the case for "all" httpS url links copied and pasted into a browser, but is the case for my current task, so no new filters needed Smile!

I don't think so. We tried but the Proxomitron would not remove "https://".

This is why ProxHTTPSProxy exists:

whenever Wrote:for every https request, it returns a "307 Moved Temporarily" response with a "Location" header pointing to the http version of the request. The purpose is to switch the browser from https mode to http mode.

Unfortunately, I have found that some clients may be rejecting the http://*:443/ url.

HSTS, HTTP Strict Transport Security, complicates issues.
