You can try basic steps like these in case of issues with web pages:

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the cache and the cookies from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

There are two kinds of mixed content.

  • Active content like scripts and content loaded in (i)frames
  • Passive content like images and media files

Firefox block active mixed content by default (security.mixed_content.block_active_content = true) and shows a blocked content shield on the location bar, but allows passive display content (security.mixed_content.block_display_content = false) and shows a warning exclamation icon on the location bar.

Okay, yes, I see that, but is there any way to possibly get rid of it. Is this a firefox bug? This hasn't happened before until it updated. Any possible way to get rid of the https

I am having the same problem as Pikapunk. With all the HTTPS connections like e-mail accounts ( Yahoo! and Gmail) and also Facebook, I see sometimes a warning icon in the shape of a triangle with an exclamation point in it next to https... (see image). If I click on it it says "This website does not supply identity information. The connection to this website is not fully secure because it contains unencrypted elements (such as images)."

When I reload the page, it goes back to normal until next time. I cleared the cache and deleted cookies, but the problem keeps reoccurring.

I tend to believe it is a glitch, but I am no expert. Kindly advise.
