I'm not sure what you are saying... depending on how you access the repo browser you are fully in control of what protocol it uses. If you invoke the repo browser by right clicking on a working copy, it will use the remote path info in the working copy to connect to the server. So, if the working copy was checked out from http:// or https:// that is what TSVN will use. You may need to "relocate" your working copy if it is pointing to a server using an incorrect protocol. You can look at the URL of your working copy by right clicking on it, choosing, properties, and then going to the Subversion tab. If the URL starts with http:// then you should use the TSVN-> Relocate command to correct it to the svn:// protocol.

If you invoke the repo browser from a non working copy, like desktop, a URL box comes up, asking for the path of the repository. It is going to use whatever protocol you specify in that path... so be sure to use svn:// there.
