So I was going to read the chat FAQ and saw this:


The formatting looks completely messed up. Is it just me?

UPDATE: This only happens on the https version of the page. On http it displays just fine. I checked my browser console and discovered this (and many similar) error:

[blocked] The page at 'https://chat.stackoverflow.com/faq' was loaded over HTTPS, but ran insecure content from 'http://cdn-chat.sstatic.net/chat/css/chat.stackoverflow.com.css?v=2a7d8c6bd8da': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS.

I think that's what's causing this.

  • It works for me

  • A temporary solution for this for chrome is support.google.com/chrome/answer/1342714?hl=en or better be lazy and click this link chat.stackoverflow.com/faq

    https is not supported in Stack Exchange. It's planned but might take long years. Simply do not browse such pages but rather only the ordinary http:// version of the site. Commented Mar 30, 2014 at 20:50

    What Shadow Wizard said. We do not support https on all parts of our site yet, so you should expect to have things break if you use https everywhere.
