Mozdev currently does not support HTTPS/SSL installs for hosted projects, only 
for the main domain - www.mozdev.org.

We're currently evaluating whether to support SSL for installs/updates, you 
can visit the following bugs to see the progress:
https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=17110
https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=17302

It appears that there may be alternatives to using SSL for installs/updates, 
but that hasn't been pinned down for sure yet.
