Allowing Insecure Content in Firefox 23/24 and Chrome

Authors list

There is a new security feature in Firefox and Chrome which automatically blocks "insecure"content from loading. In this context "insecure content" is content loaded over HTTP inside of awebsite served over HTTPS.

When this happens you will see a shield appear in the address bar. To enable the blockedcontent, click on the shield and then choose to allow the content. The below screenshots showyou how to do this in each browser.
