    I am getting this message on an aspx page over SSL. the page has a couple of
    Iframes on it. The src attribute is set to src='javascript:false;' Under
    IE6.0 this works with no warning message.
    According to the IE7.0 team blog they were going to get rid of this message
    and ensure by default all non secure items were hidden, a user would have to
    configure whether to show non secure items from the address bar.
    Why has this not been fixed and also if it's not fixed why dont I get some
    indication as to the failing non secure items?!???

    Anybody from MS care to help me.

    I quote from the IE blog

    In addition, users will no longer see the so-called Mixed-Content prompt,
    which read: This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want
    to see the nonsecure items? IE7 renders only the secure content and offers
    the user the opportunity to unblock the nonsecure content using the
    Information Bar. This is an important change because very few users (or web
    developers) fully understand the security risks of rendering HTTP-delivered
    content within a HTTPS page.

    visible here in googles cache, the blog is offline at the moment....maybe
    their busy changing the content!!!
