I have youtube.com in my blocked sites list, both http and https. http://youtube.com is blocked like it should, but https://youtube.com works fine. Why isn't it blocked too? 

I'm using CE 5.3.2, Windows 7

This happens in FF36 and Chrome 41

Sometimes youtube can react a little funny if you only add youtube.com to your block list. Try this for me: add ytimg.com and googlevideo.com (http and https) and let me know how that works.

I had the same issue when I blocked http and https of youtube.com but adding those urls worked for me. Going to https://www.youtube.com doesn't bring up the Covenant Eyes block site, but it does cause the page to fail to display for me.
