AEM Desktop App HTTPS support

When I try to connect to our AEM instances in the desktop app over HTTPs, the app fails to mount the network share.

Instead it just opens the instance in the app window:

If I connect to the instance over HTTP, it works as expected. The network share is mounted and I can see and edit files from the DAM within it.

Is HTTPs not supported in the Desktop App?

As a best security practice, we want to encrypt traffic to and from the DAM, so using HTTPs is preferred for this connection.
