I realize I should of put more emphasis on "as much" as yes this only works on only a few popular websites as defined by the plugin.

Thanks to reading Techcrunch this morning, I read about this plugin which allows you to manually define which sites you want to force an HTTPS connection on:

Force-TLS https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12714/

Mind you for any of these extensions to work the website you're visiting needs to be already accessible via ssl. If the site does not have encryption, these plugins can't force the sites to automagically start using the encryption it never had.
