User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130814063812 Steps to reproduce: When downloading files from Texas Instruments like one of the patch programmers http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/CC3000_Wi-Fi_Downloads#Patch_Programmer fails. Download does simply not start. Even if it fails, you get an email with a link inside, which also fails. (Registration required, therefore i cannot share the link, because i don't know if my login/password is somehow in link...) IE displays (i have a German version, translated by myself...) first: "Only secure content is displayed - would you display complete content" second: "Would you download or save ....exe" (EXE!) I already tried to temporarily to switch off Popup-Blocker, Ad-Blocker, "Warn me when sites try to install add-on", "Block report attack sites", "Block reported web forgeries". Still no success. I also tried a nightly build from Firefox (which is one of the version 25), but no success. Actual results: Download fails with Firefox (but works with MSIE) No download is started. Expected results: Download shall work with Firefox.
Retested with Firefox 24.0 -> it is still not working
Problem is solved! Solution: Left beside the URL in Firefox, where usually the encrypted connection info is display, is a small icon, which says: "Content is blocked" - "Do you want to unblock it?" (not real wording, but something similar). Suggestion: Perhaps you can make a popup, blinking icon, something else, which a normal user can recognize that Firefox has something for the user? (i just got the hint by a another user, many thanks, i am using Firefox really long, but this was something new for me that there is more than info behind this small icon...)
TI should repair their website and avoid mixed content...
