"Read ssl.gstatic.com"- what does this mean ?

I've had a lot of problems accessing or negotiating round MHF all day. All other sites are fine.

About 75% of tries result in a blank screen with the message:

Read ssl.gstatic.com

in the bottom left hand side of the bar below the screen. This does not go away and I have to go back to the MHF icon on my desktop and try again- and again- until eventually I get the site or give up.

Is is my computer (PC/Windows 7/ Mozilla Firefox) or what ?

Its all a bit above me but I do know its a security warning and is something to do with mixed content.

The mac shows what happens as you access a site and the ssl.gstatic does flash up but it accepts it. I think you have to accept mixed contemt sites or something along those lines.

I might be talking a load of rubbish, I am trying to remember back to a problem I had elsewhere. Hope it gives you a clue as to what to look for in sorting out the problem

It's to do with Google offloading certain kinds of content to other sites in order to speed up browsing. I presume your Firefox settings are detecting this as an attempt by MHF to redirect you somewhere else - a potentially dangerous situation since this is what malicious sites sometimes do. You may have to amend your trusted sites information in Firefox preferences.

Fingers crossed- 11.15 am Monday and just logged on but so far with no repeat of the message.

I'll keep monitoring today. Yesterday was the first time I've ever seen it.

Thanks

Doh ! Spoke too soon. Immediately after that last post I went to my inbox and clicked on the link to reply to a post about clean motorhomes and got the Read ssl. gstatic. com message again and a blank screen.

I've read Jean-Luc's link above but, to be honest, don't actually understand a lot of it and am not sure what to do to apply any fix to my computer. My computer has been advising me about a Java update for ages now which I have resisted as last time it bunged everything up, but perhaps that might help.

Will give it a try....
