I have a website (www.winemakersrecommend.com) that uses vimeo for hosting and embeding videos but for some reason firefox is blocking the videos. Vimeo is a reputable site? Can you please adjust your policy because many of my users won't know to manually adjust.

Thanks, Marcus

hello, please see https://blog.mozilla.org/tanvi/2013/04/10/mixed-content-blocking-enabled-in-firefox-23/ for details why this is happening. firefox doesn't block vimeo in particular, but all active content (scripts, flash objects, etc.) that is served via http:// one sites that otherwise use a secure connection (https://).

i think vimeo is currently working on that: http://vimeo.com/help/faq/embedding#https but otherwise you'd have to temporarily switch to serving your site via http:// to avoid the issue...
