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 apple.com. It also appears to be functioning incorrectly in Chrome 26 and IE10.

https://apple.com/ should render and function like http://apple.com/, but it doesn't because some HTTP resource(s) are not loaded. Here is a list of the active, HTTP resources that were blocked on https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/: 

Blocked loading mixed active content "http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/13oygadvoyibawefpiuawefpiuawdf6/event/url.js" @ https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/

this is not the case anymore. Everything is fine there.


This is still the case for https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/

note that when using HTTPS we get an untrusted connection issue.

This event doesn't exist anymore.
http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/

Looking at http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/
It doesn't seem there is any issue with mixed content anymore.
