hello, for details on why this blocking mechanism was introduced in firefox please refer to How does content that isn't secure affect my safety?.
for a demo on how the mixed content blocking can protect you in the wild you could see the following demo/sample page by microsoft: https://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/browser/mixedcontent/assets/woodgrove.htm
if you'd like to generally turn of mixed content blocking nevertheless, enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named security.mixed_content.block_active_content. double-click it and change its value to false.
