Although they are implemented for safety purposes, many security warnings end up being more of a sore thumb to the user than benefit them in any way. For example, Internet Explorer often shows dialog box with a security warning shown below:
“Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?”
This webpage contains content that will not delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.
This particular dialog box contains three choices “More Info” to open a help window , yes to block non-secure content and no to display mixed content.ADVERTISEMENT
The technical reason for showing such a warning is that on a page with a mix of secure and non-secure content (HTTP and HTTPS), non-secure web scripts may be able to access secure information.
If you do not visit shady sites (read porn/warez/hacking/otherwise illegal), then you may want to disable “Do You Want To View Only the Webpage Content that Was Delivered Securely?” security warning / dialog box.
