Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Using HTTPS, if using one iframe in a document (refering to more ssl content),
no problems.  Using two iframes results in an insecure data error, "You have
requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information ...". 
This does not seem to be affected by the content of the iframes.  I can use the
same code for an iframe, twice in a document (same url for each iframe) and
receive the same error message so the problems seems to be with using more than
one iframe in a secure document.

Is there any way to use multiple iframes and avoid this error (broken lock, also).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.code two iframes in any ssl document
2.load page
3.read error on loading

Actual Results:  
saw Mozilla error message "You have requested an encrypted page that contains
some unencrypted information ...". 

Expected Results:  
no error

I can delete either iframe and the message goes away (does not reoccur).  Also,
when viewing the "page info" for the iframed documents, the url has "https"
inserted correctly.  I have tried adding the "https://www..../" to the links but
it seems to make no difference.

Iframe tags in SSL document
<iframe name="show_links" height="20%" width="100%" frameborder="0"
scrolling="auto" src="/iacuc/getdata/number
1.pl?order_by=skey&order=abc&index=display_record"></iframe>
<hr size="1" width="90%">
<iframe name="show_links" height="20%" width="100%" frameborder="0"
scrolling="auto" src="/iacuc/getdata/number
2.pl?order_by=skey&order=abc&index=display_record"></iframe>

I can provide a temporary link if necessary although I'm sure that you can
quickly duplicate the problem using local cod if you've acces to a server with SSL.
