Tor and HTTPS


Sorry if this sounds a bit stupid but looking for some 
clarification. I've read that using HTTPS over Tor actually reduces 
your security due to the bypass of your local proxy (Privoxy, etc) -
 is this the case for all usage or does it justs affect hidden 
services? For example, if I am accessing Hushmail via a Tor-enabled 
Firefox browser, is that traffic not protected by the anonymized 
circuit or otherwise less secure than a connection to a port 80 web 

Thanks -nD
