Detecting https protocol in URL

I'm setting up access to an Alfresco Share system through a firewall via an https proxy on an Apache server to allow access to Share to external collaborators.

As others, I encountered the problem that multiple file upload with Flash is not working (at least not with FF 3.6 and IE 8 on Windows Vista which I use) ( http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=23840&p=78012&hilit=upload+flash#p78012 ).

One work-around that I found it to modify tomcat/webapps/share/components/upload/file-upload.js to force simple html upload and tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/site-webscripts/org/alfresco/components/upload/html-upload.get.properties to hide the tip concerning installing Flash.

This has the inconvenient that it blocks multiple uploads also for on-site users who are allowed to access Share in http and who will be in our case the main document contributors. I would like to detect the protocol of the current URL and use this information to selectively block multiple uploads. Is there an  attribute that I could use in the Javascript ?

Thanks for any help on this.
