#1911: Credits API: Prefer HTTPS for External Libraries links

 Some of the links for the external libraries, as shown on the credits
 page, use HTTP when the library site also supports HTTPS i.e.
 http://jquery.com is available at https://jquery.com. If HTTPS is
 available, I would expect that to be linked to.

 These are the ones I found that could be updated:

 * Class POP3 -> https://squirrelmail.org
 * Color Animations -> https://plugins.jquery.com/color/
 * Horde Text Diff -> https://pear.horde.org (which may be better linked to
 the more specific https://pear.horde.org#horde_text_diff)
 * jQuery -> https://jquery.com
 * jQuery UI -> https://jqueryui.com
 * jQuery.query -> https://plugins.jquery.com/query-object/
 * PemFTP -> https://www.phpclasses.org/package/1743-PHP-FTP-client-in-
 pure-PHP.html (though has mixed content warnings)
 * TinyMCE -> https://www.tinymce.com/ (HTTP redirects to HTTPS anyway)


 Not strictly related, but worth mentioning, is that the jQuery.suggest
 link is to http://plugins.jquery.com/project/suggest, but this redirects
 to http://archive.plugins.jquery.com/project/suggest which is a site that
 can't be reached. Maybe http://polarblau.github.io/suggest/ is a more
 suitable URL in the mean time, if this is the same package.
