We have several sites that have SSL Certificates. When the website switches to HTTPS, Firefox still shows our pages with a grey globe. Sites (like Amazon) are showing they are secure displaying HTTPS pages. Other browsers are displaying our pages secure like they should.

Chosen solution

a grey globe should only be shown for a "secure" page when there's mixed content on that page

Thanks for your reply ... with the web console I have found the mixed content culprit. :)
