Download adblock json data via HTTPS

The adblock list comes down via json over HTTP. The list will occasionally trip IDS/IPS because the adblock rules contain strings to block malicious or aggressive marketing.
Presently Opera makes a GET request for JSON data to the hostname get.geo.opera.com.global.prod.fastly.net in the clear. I will tune the IDS, however there is no reason why this should not be going over HTTPS.
