Mixed content blocking is a feature that prevents insecure elements on secure pages from loading. In Firefox 23, this feature will default to blocking "active" insecure content, which may break some web sites. 

More information on Firefox's Mixed Content Blocker is below: 
http://blog.mozilla.org/tanvi/2013/04/10/mixed-content-blocking-enabled-in-firefox-23/

The security feature is currently breaking the HTTPS version of www.youtube.com/edit. It also appears to be functioning incorrectly in IE10.

https://www.youtube.com/edit should render and function like http://www.youtube.com/edit, but it doesn't because some HTTP resource(s) are not loaded.  Here is a list of the active, HTTP resources that were blocked:

It also looks like there is a mixed active content on the https://www.youtube.com/my_videos page

Blocked loading mixed active content "http://www.google.com/support/youtube/api/answer/2974269/guidedhelp?hl=en_US&callback=_callbacks_._0hhici54y" @ https://ssl.gstatic.com/inproduct_help/guide/guide_inproduct.js:38

The https equivalent link exists.

Sending this over to some folks at Chrome Security, hoping they can pass it along to the right youtube contacts.

I no longer see this issue any mixed content issues when I go to the video edit or my_videos page.  Mihai or Matt, can you verify?

Mixed content issues seems to have been fixed. Should we close?
