The rule files exist in two locations - the addon installed set, and
the user installed set. The addon installed set are in your Firefox
profile directory under the following path:

User supplied files live in ./HTTPSEverywhereUserRules/ in the Firefox
profile directory.

We plan to have some form of UI to automatically install filters to
the user directory from the web, similar to the Adblock Plus
subscription list.

In the meantime, we'll gladly accept submissions as xml files for
inclusion in the extension itself.
