A non-secure URL in a secure page in a frame won't open unless opened in a new tab.

Posted

When I click on non-secure link in secure page in a frame it won't open the URL unless I open it in a new tab. If I change the non-secure link to a secure link in a secure page in a frame I can open the URL in the page. If I open the page with no frame I can open the non-secure link in the secure page. It seems to be the frame is stopping the non-secure link opening.

This is about blocking mixed content on a secure web page. You can check the Web Console for security related messages. You will probably see something like: "The operation is insecure". Frames can open all kind of pages and in a secure page all frames need to be secure just like JavaScript files need to be loaded via a secure connection.

I will have to redesign my entire site or put information for users on how to open the links using open in new tab. This is not insignificant.
