http not being honored in LT talk

Not every domain is using https. If I post a link that is http, LT talk should be honoring that I'm know what the heck I'm typing and I mean HTTP not HTTPS. -a href- tags 1/2 work, badly.

No html coding...
http://annabellewhite.com/buttermilk-scones/buttermilk-scones/ looks like http, right? Mouse over the link. It is directing you to https and that site doesn't use https.

HTML coding...
http://annabellewhite.com/buttermilk-scones/buttermilk-scones looks like http, coded as http...isn't http.

HTML coding...
But this is http

LT Talk, you are drunk and disorderly and annoying me.

Proof that I'm using http not https...

>1 lesmel: I'm not sure it's totally LT with the problem. It seems to depend on how you are getting to LT in the first place.

For instance, I'm using FF 65 on a mac. Somehow I can be on the talk page via 'http://www.librarything.com/talk' or 'https://www.librarything.com/talk' or 'www.librarything.com/talk' i.e. that's what's showing up in the navigation bar. FF rewrites the links I click on to match the protocol in the navigation URL!

Well, there is an old bug about https links not working, so...the reverse is happening.

I have http problems to. I use http to make stars but they don't work anymore. I need to use https, but you can't just put an 's' in. Then the link is broken too. So my stars don't show. Just like >3 lesmel: mentioned.

LT sucks at HTTP/HTTPS and this looks like the same thing that is happening in the latter half of the posts in this thread: https://www.librarything.com/topic/302508.
