    "The page at 'about:blank' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://yukterez.net/lcdm/lcdm-flrw-animation.gif'. This content should also be served over HTTPS."

    OK, so you were logged in when you grabbed that image.

    For a good time, try replying to Dave's post #7. The post will be quoted, and the quoted text is:

    Code (Text):
    [QUOTE="DaveC426913, post: 5379366, member: 15808"]"The page at 'about:blank' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image '[URL]http://yukterez.net/lcdm/lcdm-flrw-animation.gif[/URL]'. This content should also be served over HTTPS."[/QUOTE]
    The actual HTML source for the image link in Dave's post is:
    Code (Text):

    <img src="proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fyukterez.net%2Flcdm%2Flcdm-flrw-animation.gif&amp;hash=22277d685e2fa51c941e08f73fa4d933" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[&#x200B;IMG]" data-url="[PLAIN]http://yukterez.net/lcdm/lcdm-flrw-animation.gif"[/PLAIN] [Broken] />

    @Greg Bernhardt will know more details, but I guess the proxy used for forum images doesn't allow animated gifs to be displayed directly.

    Edit: Okay, then the http(s) issue.

    Yes it does.

    The issue seems tobe that the OP's image was served from a secure server, yet the .gif is not.

    Eh, had I been more promiscuous and careless when I was in secondary school, I could now ask my teenage son to explain what your responses mean and save me from having to admit my ignorance. :wink:
    But no worries, I'll talk to uncle Google. Seems like knowing the difference between http and https is something everybody should know in this day and age.

    Well, https simply means it's a secure site, like logging on your your favorite physics forum.

    I'm not entirely sure how to solve the problem, since I was able to see the same page as you yet I was not logged in. So I guess it;s a little more involved than that.

    Our image proxy cache solves the HTTPS issue. However why one animated gif shows and one doesn't I am not yet sure. I will continue to investigate.
