WebResource.axd going over HTTP when we are browsing on HTTPS


Consider this scenario: you are browsing a web site which at some point switches from http to https, and your browser show you a warning.

In Firefox you get:

Connection Partially Encrypted
Parts of the page you are viewing were not encrypted before being transmitted over
the Internet.
Information sent over the Internet without encryption can be seen by other people
while it is in transit

In Internet Explorer you get:

This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.
Do you want to display the nonsecure items?

Security Information 

You can check KB #910444 for SSL termination in ASP.NET; if this does not help, check this post, that was the situation I had to deal with a few days ago.

 

Just an additional note: if you wish to control how your browser behaves in such situations, you can check (and change) the following settings in Internet Explorer and Firefox:

 

Internet Explorer 
Display mixed content in Internet Explorer

 

 

Firefox 
Warning messages in Firefox
