Annoying prompts after enabling SSL

When SSL is enabled in Internet Explorer, creating a new rule or editing an existing rule may display a message which says "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecure items?"

This is a known defect with Internet Explorer that falsely indicates the page is not secure.

Solution: There are two possible solutions.

A) You may choose yes or no. Neither choice will send sensitive information over a connection which is not secure. If you choose no, you may momentarily see an error page before the rule editor is displayed.

B) You can disable the warning by completing the following steps (in Internet Explorer):
  1. Select Tools from the menu.
  2. Then select Internet Options.
  3. On the Security tab, click the Custom Level button.
  4. In the Settings dialog, scroll down until you see the Miscellaneous category.
  5. Under the "Display mixed content" option, select the radio button Enable.
  6. Click OK to save your changes.
DONE: Now whenever you visit a secured web page, you will not get the popup you were getting before.
