With the recent releases of Mozilla Firefox 23 and 24 and Google Chrome 30, content from non-secured websites that is displayed in a secure website is not displayed (for example, a YouTube video embedded in a Desire2Learn course shell.) While it is possible to disable this feature, it might leave the user’s computer vulnerable. Using the options below, you can allow the material that is not secured to display on a page by page basis.
Option 1 – INSTALL A FIREFOX ADD-ON: This will allow you to toggle the mixed content blocker on pages.
Install the Add-on by clicking the following link or copy and paste into a new browser window: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/toggle-mixed-active-content/
Option 2 – Allow mixed content display in Mozilla Firefox 23 or 24.
Click on the shield icon in the address bar, the user will see options to “Learn More”, “Keep Blocking”, or “Disable Protection on This Page”:
Option 1 – Allow mixed content display in Google Chrome
Click the alert shield icon in the address bar.
- In the icon dialog box, click Load anyway.
- Chrome will refresh the page and load its content, including any insecure content. The URL in the address bar will show to indicate that the page is not fully secure.
