sorry if i didn't specify my problem in detail.
i'm not using a webserver or anything. i'm just a regular user. the point is:
i often forget to specify https://... for that specific address in apps like

i'd like freebsd to take care of this so even if the app is trying to access
the non-ssl version it should in fact be redirected to the ssl version by
