Most websites that use HTTPS start out with pages that are HTTP. Then if there is a transaction, transfer to HTTPS, then back to HTTP after transaction complete.  What happens if the website does not take the user back to HTTP? Thanks.

    HTTPS is for a secured transaction. If you do not go back to a HTTP it's by the webmasters design or they do not do proper clean-up after the transaction. Regardless it should have no real effect on your browsing. When you go to another site (different domain) the HTTPS will drop.

    ToddN2000:  Thanks for your reply.  Does it not leave the https secure server open for the time being until the site is exited?
