Directly related to my last meta post that was – the favicons on beta sites for the site stats widget doesn't actually use HTTPS, but redirects down to HTTP instead, resulting in the same issue as before.

https://stackexchange.com/favicon.ico -> http://sstatic.net/stackexchange/img/favicon.ico

Here's a curl fetch with trimmed headers:

➜  ~  curl -v https://stackexchange.com/favicon.ico
*   Trying 104.16.14.128...
* Connected to stackexchange.com (104.16.14.128) port 443 (#0)
* TLS 1.2 connection using TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256

  • stackexchange.com is a beta site? – Chris Jester-Young Oct 2 '15 at 3:50
  • @ChrisJester-Young this is the more site stats table on the right of the screen, which shows the area51 + stackexchange favicons. – Amelia Oct 2 '15 at 5:38
