I am getting this message on certain program, such as Craigs List.

 

Do you want to view the webpage that was delivered securely:

The webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection,

which could compromise the security of the entire webpage

The above is a routine browser/security warning.

 

When I receive such, I elect to only see the secure content.  My reasoning is that viewing unsecured detail...from whatever source...negates the purpose of placing the webpage behind secure controls.  Since the website I intend to visit...believes that the content should be secure...it makes no sense to me for me to authorize the downloading of non-secure content, regardless of origin.

The one thing that has alwys bothered me about doing the disable prompt is there are only 2 other options enable or disable.

If you chose either of the others for example disable. Does it only disable the prompt or are you from then on going to get mixed content every time you open a page.  Personally I prefer not downloading mixed content.

Again thanks for the help, nor real savvy in this field, what is mixed content? If I need to download a certain program will I know if it is mixed content?
