sounds like someone just updated all the links (probably in a misguided
attempt at preparing to "go live" on the non-test domain name) changing
them from:
 <img src="/images/file.gif">
  <img src="http://www.livesite.com/images/file.gif">

making the URL absolute instead of relative, and pointing them at the
images using the explicit http:// not https:// protocol.

got any FrontPage or Dreamweaver monkeys editing your pages?
