Related hint: Firefox' search bar will switch to using HTTPS for Wikipedia in Firefox 34: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=758857
It's not solely a Firefox problem (though I appreciate that Mozilla will fix this issure in future versions). I tested this in Internet Explorer 11, with the same result.
Since August 2013, https is the standard protocol at least for registered users. We should offer non-registered users the same convenience. Isn't it possible to use protocol-relative URLs in opensearch_desc.php?
