1. In Browser visit <http://www.draytek.de/>

Actual: <https://myvigoreu.draytek.com/download_de/> will
not open because it does not exist. So Error 404.
I see that after a short moment in URL bar "http" becomes replaced by
Unable to reproduce. I just get the requested directory of downloadable
files. Waited 13 minutes, no switch to https.
A lot of sites automatically redirect you to the https version of
their site, like google.
http://www.google.com redirects to https://www.google.com
True enough, but this one didn't.
As Bret noted, this redirection is probably some feature of the site,
and not of SeaMonkey.
