Why am I getting this error in IE? "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?"

Knowledge Article Number 000005016

Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which would compromise the security of the entire webpage

This error is caused by passing unsecure information through a page with a secure connection. For example, google uses HTTP while salesforce uses HTTPS. If you create a custom HTML sidebar component with Google or another unsecure website, your browser might give this error. If you want to keep this component, but don't want to have the message you will have to add the source to your trusted sites and allow Mixed Content for trusted sites.


Here's an example using Salesforce. You'll have to add whatever the source of your component is that's causing the issue.

1. Click Tools
2. Click Internet Options
3. Click the security tab
4. Click Trusted Sites (Green Checkmark)
5. Click the Sites box
6. Under "Add this website to this trusted zone" type:
7. Click Add
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 with:
9. Click Close
10. Click "Custom Level"
11. Scroll down to the miscellaneous section.
12. Under "Display Mixed Content" click "Enable."
13. Click OK
14. Close all browser windows
15. Reopen your browser
16. Attempt to reproduce this issue
