I am using IE8 browser on WindowsXp. Til last fortnight I was able to see Images in my gmail. But all of a sudden, when I try to open any email containing images, I get security warning from Microsoft firewall that webpage contains content not through HTTPS secure connection.
I want to know what setting has got changed. Is it due to some update from Microsoft or Gmail has made certain changes. I have tried to solve the problem by changing security settings from internet options to default. Adding Google & gmail as trusted sites. But problem is not solved.
Gmail setting for always display images is ineffective. It seems that Images are filtered at the server before email is downloaded in my Laptop.
Ok do this, click on "Tools" in IE8 and then on "Internet Options". Now click on the "Security" tab then on "Custom level". Scroll down to "Display mixed content" and click on "Enable". Net click on "ok" then followed by "Apply" to be done.
I think I may have an answer for you - this one confounded me for a little bit too! Right before you open an e-mail which contains pictures, you'll probably get a pop-up message asking if you wish to see only content which is secure - you should answer 'No,' and then you will be able to see the pictures OK.
