When you open a secure webpage using HTTPS you
may find that it also contains non-secure HTTP
content. When this occurs Internet Explorer will
flag it by displaying a Only Secure Content Is
Displayed banner (see below).
Fig: 61-1 The Only secure content
is displayed banner
Once this banner pops up you have two options.
You can either ignore it or ask Internet explorer to
Show all content.
In most cases the banner is actually ignored,
thus the mixed content is never displayed. If you
are the type of person that regularly ignores this
banner then the chances are that the regularity by
which it keeps popping up becomes a pain.
Fortunately, you don't have to have this banner
popping up at inopportune moments, you can, instead
disable it completely.
To disable the Only secure content is displayed
banner, proceed as follows.
