Fix IE "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?"

By default, Internet Explorer interrupts the download of mixed webpage content on secure HTTPS pages, such as some nonsecure images, or any embedded resources not using the HTTPS protocol.

Internet Explorer displays a confirmation dialog whenever it detects the use of mixed content on a secure page. To download the content, a user would have to click on the Yes or No button, depending on your browser version (Yes for IE 6/7, no for IE 8 due to wording changes).

Even though avoiding mixed content on secure HTTPS pages is important, it is a common annoyance to deal with the prompt on every page reload.

If you're sure you'd like to disable this dialog, in Internet Explorer navigate to:

1. In Internet Explorer, navigate to: Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom level
2. Under the Miscellaneous heading: Display mixed content: Enable
3. Click Yes when prompted to save the custom settings
