When I vist the main https://stackexchange.com/ site, IE9 blocks the display of content using an invalid security certificate, as indicated on the infobar at the bottom of the page.

  • Secure connections are still an ongoing project for SE. They've explained this elsewhere. They're slowly working on it, so you can't expect everything to be working yet.

  • Do you mean https://stackexchange.com/?

    Happens to me every time I click my "network profile" ink. IE9 on win 7. Not an https connection, but a yellow "blocked" bar about sites with invalid certificates. Commented Dec 21, 2011 at 19:04
  • Are there even certificates for the HTTP protocol? Seems pretty pointless...

    The Stack Exchange site does link to secure resources for both regular and secured connections (for some reason). Although simply clicking the "show whatever" button in the yellow box permanently cleared the issue for me. I think it's just IE saying "why are we loading secure things from a non-secure page?" Perhaps I got a different error.

    @Dennis, A page you navigate to via http may make references to other content using https. Commented Dec 21, 2011 at 19:07
  • @MichaelPetrotta: I see. JQuery and OpenID.

  • I get this in IE8 on one computer but not IE8 on another computer. Strange.

http://stackexchange.com no longer serves https content on http pages. Thanks for the report.
