Disable Warning Popup of NonSecure Items on Internet Explorer

Posted in Windows by Abhishek Bhowmick on June 26, 2010

You receive a warning message that either says “This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecure items?” or “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 could compromise the security of the entire webpage.” Both of this message is actually the same except from different versions of Internet Explorer.

You get this warning when you visit a secured website that is protected with SSL and you will find a HTTPS at the beginning of the URL. This happens due to images in the secured webpage that are linked to non secured HTTP protocol sites.

You can click Yes to continue loading the secured webpage but this selection is not saved and if you encounter such situation again, you will again be prompted about the mixed-content pages which may be annoying. If you want to permanently disable and suppress this error prompt, open Internet explorer > go to Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > make sure Internet zone is selected and click Custom level. Look for “Display mixed content” and select it to Enable. This should disable the prompt.
