Chrome forces http site to open in https, and then won't open because no SSL

We've just launched http://www.allhandsondecknyc.com/ , without ssl.

However, Chrome [only] forces it to open as an https page, and then tells us:

Your Connection is not Private:
Attackers may be trying to steal your information from allhandsondecknyc.com

We don't want to install SSL, we want it to open as http:// . The site works perfectly in Firefox and Safari, and in most mobile browsers; it's just Google Chrome that insists on opening as an https.

Please help?

Hi @shanacohen, sorry you're having problems with your site. You should report the issue in the WordPress.org support forums, as this issue tracker is for core bugs in the WordPress open source software.

It's also worth noting that this may be an issue local to your computer, as the site loads fine for me in Chrome over HTTP.

Thank you so much for your quick response. Unfortunately, it's not just a local issue, my clients are having it everywhere, even on clean machines -- if they type in allhandsondecknyc.com, it forces it to open as https.

(This isn't a core wordpress issue, given the is_ssl in wp-includes/load.php ? That's why I posted it here. I found that here:

@shanacohen your domain works with HTTP here.

How do we reproduce the error on another site?

WordPress trac is meant for issues that can be reproduced and / or that occur on most other sites (before we find a way to reproduce).

The error seems particular to your site.
