               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.

If it's the site .... Could you explain why ONLY Rainer Bielefeld  have
the problem ?

I can't, hence the "probably."

On the other hand, I can't think of any reason why SM would alter a URL.

It's SeaMonkey 2.46, based on Gecko 52.0 which has changes to it that redirects http to https pages, if they exist?

No idea why it doesn't in a new profile, other than there are no changes and his production profile is corrupt.
