Hello all,

 

When I log into gg (I'm using IE 8 on my PC at work) I get the following message come up:

 

Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.
Yes and no options

 

I didn't have this problem originally when I signed up, but then it started happening. But it had seemed to solve itself recently as it didn't happen for a bit, but now its come back this week. Possibly related to the website update this week?

 

Was just wondering if anyone else was having this issue?

 

And yes, I know, should update browser and use a better/different one

This is a feature of your browser, not an error

 

You can get similar messages all over the internet, that there is a mixture of secure and non-secure elements on the page. For example, you might be on a secure page looking at an account or even just an internet forum, and some of the images are on non-secure parts of the site, or hosted on other sites (for example avatars on a forum)

Maybe download and use Firefox? Or Google chrome?

This is because some content of the page isn't coming over SSL (the s part of https).

 

I haven't bothered looking, but nine times out of ten it's due to an image in the page not being requested over ssl.
