non-https addressed redirected by something called Sectorlink
Whenever I enter a web address to a non-HTTPS site, the page is redirected by something called Sectorlink that tells me to upload my index page when ready. I don't seem to be able to get around this redirection. It does not happen using Chrome.
In the attached image, I typed "nov" (for novelpost159.org) and the system auto-completed the address and was immediately redirected to Sectorlink. The novelpost159 is not HTTPS and probably never will be, but it is interfered with by Sectorlink. This redirecting (hijacking?) forces me to use the Chrome browser.
Thanks for the help

Hmm, if I try https://novelpost159.org/ I get a certificate error page. But my Firefox doesn't try it automatically, it uses the http address when I click the link in your post.
In case this is a problem with the HTTPS-Only feature, you can make exceptions for sites that do not work properly with HTTPS. This article has more info: HTTPS-Only Mode in Firefox
The way address bar suggestions work, if Firefox has stored the https address in history, it probably takes precedence over the http address. You may need to go into history (Ctrl+Shift+H), find the site, right-click > Delete Page. I wouldn't use the Forget... option at this point.
