ajax call via https

I'm working on an ajax call which returns results that contains some sensitive user data. The application uses an ssl certificate during normal day to day operations.

I was curious if the browser will still use the certificate and encrypt the data if I were to make an ajax call via the https protocol? Do any of you know of a good way to test the flow and server response?

Thanks, I got a little nervous seeing the Firebug response in Firefox. But I guess that's the browser translation of the response.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
