Since a lot of them try and redirect https, which works less and less often even.
Also NEVER accept a dodgy certificate for a domain you care about, this opens up a
whole range of attacks.
Additional to the excellent comments by Mr M, find a website that works over http
and open that one (of course this opens your browser up to other attacks but you're
mostly stuck with them).
I use http://www.ibm.com/ as they make no efforts to prevent people from
intercepting traffic to their site.
