    Logging out of a secure (https) banking website, the site redirects back to
    its normal (http) homepage.

    However, IE7 B2 thinks that the redirected web page is still supposed to be
    secure, and blocks all 'unsecure content' such as JPEG pictures.

    Something that the developers need to have a look at I think

    The problem may be your banks servers, as I have no problem signing out or
    into mine. Https change to http upon redirect and JPEG's etc not blocked.

    All I can say is that this behaviour is not demonstrated in IE6 or Firefox,
    but is evident in IE7 Beta 2.

    It could be something to do with the way the banks web page is set-up upon
    logout (I expect it is not a simple redirect). However, the banks front page
    is a non-secure page, and I can see no obvious reason why IE7 should think it
    is meant to be secure when IE6 & Firefox do not.

    The wonderful folks at MS believe that graphics are "mixed content" and
    anything mixed on a HTTPS connection is a security risk.........I have begged
    and boasted that certain graphics are NOT a security hazard and should be let
    filtered thru on a "mixed content" page........to no avail.........probably
    those graphics are connecting with the https or http protocol while the
    logout page is doing the opposite..........it sucks
