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 causing errors on the HTTPS version of newgrounds.com. It also causes errors on Chrome 26 and IE10.

https://www.newgrounds.com/ should render and function like http://www.newgrounds.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:

This is still going on but it's less of an issue.

There are a couple of ads breaking such as

```

var cpmstar_pid=48070;
document.writeln("<SCR"+"IPT language='Javascript' src='//server.cpmstar.com/view.aspx?poolid="+cpmstar_pid+"&script=1&rnd="+cpmstar_rnd+"'></SCR"+"IPT>");
</script><script language="Javascript" src="//server.cpmstar.com/view.aspx?poolid=48070&amp;script=1&amp;rnd=900234"></script><script type="text/javascript">

We get the same behavior in Opera Blink and Safari WebKit.
