I've been using Google Chrome for a while, but just a couple of days ago the HTTPS Upgrades dropdown menu disappeared from chrome://flags/httpsUpgrades, and I couldn't find an alternative way to disable upgrades. 

I'm typing from Google Chrome v. 123.0.6312.59 (64-bit).

  • What is the point of preventing upgrades?

    @John: I can't view an old website anymore because it downloaded stylesheets and scripts from an http origin which is now auto-upgraded to https, causing it to fail. Mar 28 at 13:08
  • I cannot assist. HTTPS has been around and in use for a very long tme.

    @John: I know. However the aforementioned site was created through a template and the management system doesn't allow to customize the protocol of the links (adds http:// automatically). The flag was there and working until like two or three days ago. Mar 28 at 15:51

    @Blindspots: Appreciated the efforts, but I'm not trying to prevent Google Chrome software updates, I'm trying to prevent Chrome from turning http:// requests to https:// requests automatically. Mar 30 at 15:59
