Why doesn't the HTTPS indicator appear in my browser?

Note that if the page contains any insecure items that use normal HTTP instead of HTTPS, such as images, CSS files, or JavaScript files, the typical HTTPS security icon that appears in the browser window address bar will not appear. Instead, a different icon will appear that does mention that the page is secure but that it also contains insecure items on it. Normally this should not be a cause for concern because the page itself is being trasferred using HTTPS. Typically images or CSS files loaded on the page won't present a security risk. Ensuring that any HTML entered into the Appearance -> HTML section of your Website Toolbox account uses HTTPS will allow the full HTTPS indicator to appear on most pages. However, posts where users have inserted images that are from normal HTTP URLs will still show the partial HTTPS icon in the browser address bar.
