To disable message "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?" in IE


Microsoft Internet Explorer

Problem:

This message is triggered only in IE, when non-secure (http) resource is called in a secure page (https).

 

other-iesecure1

 

Eg: a non-secure website into an iframe of a secure website, or a non-secure image in a secure website.

Note: older IE browsers will display the following message:

"Do you want to display nonsecure items?"

 

Solutions:

To fix, you can change the default setting of IE.

1. Goto IE > Tools > Internet Options > Security

2. Select 'Security' tab

3. Click 'Custom Level'

4. In the 'Miscellaneous' section change "Display mixed content" to Enable

 

Or in the case of download non-secure image to secure website, just change the image's url to use https, which will prevent the warning from appearing.
