Out of the Blue

Okay, the switch was flipped, and everyone should now be accessing the site by SSL by default. It doesn't seem likely that this is causing any problems, but if it is, please let us know ASAP (though if this preventing accessing the site, you probably aren't reading this... damn!). Anyway, a big thank you to Frans for getting this worked out for us.

Secure Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Mutant Selection.
Link: Eggspressos Are Espresso Shots Served in Chocolate Easter Eggs, Obviously.
Story: More than $200,000 in vintage comics stolen from Macon, GA comic book shop.
Media: INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US (Honest Game Trailers).
Quentin Tarantino - You Think You Know Movies?
Japanese Girl Is A Better Drummer Than You.

It looks like Amazon's got a problem with their Associate links. The iframes get loaded securely with src="//" urls, which inherit the "https" prefix if the originating site used it. Unfortunately, the served content has hardcoded http:// links to the clickable images, and that triggers the warning.
Yes, that is a known problem already mentioned by Blue.

Blue, check this link out: . It looks like adding "&internal=1" to your iframe request will make those images get fetched over https.
Ah, excellent find, that worked for our Amazon links too, despite the different hostnames. Thanks!

Now Chrome and consider the site completely okay. But Firefox and IE11 are more strict, and still display mixed-content warnings due to the ads which have the same problem with their tracking pixels.
