[SOLVED] Is the forum broken or its my browser ?
« on: October 05, 2019, 03:39:49 am »
While reading TEA thread  :P , I noticed there is a yellow sign on the lock, meaning the page is not secured.

I was viewing this post -> TEA thread post #40636  ::)

[attachimg=3]


But at the forum's main page, its secured.  :-//

[attachimg=1]

Running at Win7 and latest FF, with No Script and UBlock Origin add-ons, but both disabled specifically for this site.

Anyone experiencing this too ?

If a page has external pictures that are not transferred using HTTPS, it is considered a mixed content, thus the warning.

Malwarebytes also flagged that page due to something from "cubeupload"

But currently the page has two hosts for photos from external, which are secured.

Example links of the photos hosted externally.

If you check a little closer, no, the embeds from cubeupload are not HTTPS.

That's not an embedded image, that's your browser having navigated to it and chosen to use HTTPS.

The images as loaded on the page are over HTTP. That is why it is warning you about mixed content.

The pictures are linked using HTTP. When you try to open them in a new tab, your browser will first try to modify the link to HTTPS, that's why you see HTTPS when you open it separately.

Wonder why the poster didn't use HTTPS ?

Testing below, using forum's IMG bbcode attaching this particular image using HTTPS instead -> https://u.cubeupload.com/worsthorse/IMG0792.jpg



Yep, this whole page of this thread is still secured.

Learn something everyday, thanks.  :-+
