Hmm. On my FF2 and also IE6 I now don't get an unauthenticated or
unverified content issue, so that's good. But I do get:

This page contains both secure and insecure items.

which I think may be due to image references not using https:// but
I'm not sure.

I'm sorry that my post upset you Ken. Perhaps I misunderstood, but I
thought the point of this list was to allow people to ask for
assistance with issues just like this one. I actually DID test myself
on my FF2 but I wanted to see if anyone else is seeing different
results. If this thread is unpleasant for you, then perhaps it would
be best just not to respond.

Well, if you read the post before and after yours, it actually appears
that the problem is not 100% solved. Both those posters report that
there IS still a problem. Again, this is what I thought this list was
for--so that people can share their resources (including different
OS's and browsers etc.) together--it turns out that people ARE seeing
different results.

Hmm, that is a bit beyond my knowledge of SSL technology. To be
honest, I do not expect much traffic from Opera users on this site.
Perhaps I am wrong, however.

Seems that the jury is still out, but that it's working much better anyhow. :)
