This question already has an answer here:
- Network-wide HTTPS: It's time 40 answers
Sometimes in the chat rooms, I see a warning icon instead of the normal green lock in Firefox.
Looking through the "More Information" area, I see that the site is trying to load
I've tried clearing my cache, but that didn't change anything. So I've been popping in and out of chat rooms on various sites, and it seems that the issue only appears in chat rooms that were automatically created and imported from comments.
Now, I've been told in the comments that HTTPS on chat isn't really supported yet. This is fine. What is strange to me is that the only thing loaded that is not HTTPS is this single
apple-touch-icon.png (with the main SE logo). Firefox states that the associated text for this icon is "Feeds".
If the page were to use the site-specific
apple-touch-icon (which is already loaded, as shown by the next line in my screenshot), there would be no plain HTTP connections. Why do we need to load both the site-specific and general SE icons? Why do we need to load the general SE icon over plain HTTP?
