Firefox Version: 63.0.1 (64-bit). New issue (i.e. behavior not seen previously).
Currently, all attempts to download an image, from a site deemed to be "Not secure" due to having mixed content (images) fail. - Instead of downloading, a small yellow circle appears over the Down-arrow (downloads) icon. - Clicking on it shows "Failed" for every such image download attempt. - Clicking Retry for each such image causes the download to succeed (in every case). - So, yes. There's a work-around. But it's quite annoying when trying to download lots of images.
Note: I followed the 'Learn more' link associated with the security status (orange triangle) and read the article: - It says "A grey lock with an orange triangle indicates that Firefox is not blocking insecure passive content, such as images". - But that's not the case. - It also says how to "Unblock mixed content". But the method described there isn't available. - i.e. there is no "Disable protection for now" button (as described).
Is this just a new bug, or is it that the documentation needs updating? And, if the later, how to fix?
