About mixed content
When you visit a secure web page (i.e., using HTTPS), your connection is encrypted with SSL. If the HTTPS page also includes content retrieved through a regular HTTP connection, the connection is only partially encrypted. This is called a web page with mixed content.

By default, mixed content is blocked in Internet Explorer (version 10+), Mozilla Firefox (version 23+) and Google Chrome (version 21+). When mixed content is blocked, you may see a blank page or a message saying that "Only secure content is displayed". To enable a browser to view blocked mixed content, follow the relevant instructions below.
