IE Frame Bug

Bob Lee brought up a Sneaky little IE BUG:

Some of my IE users were seeing a, "mixed secure and insecure content," warning. After looking everywhere for a style sheet, web page, image or script loaded via HTTP instead of HTTPS, I tracked the problem down to an iframe missing the src attribute (the attribute was set dynamically later on by Javascript). The correct solution is not for the client to lower their security settings. Mixing insecure (HTTP) and secure (HTTPS) content can defeat the security of the secure content. A truly secure web site should use HTTPS from the first page to the last and not cut security corners for the sake of performance. You can work around the issue by setting the src attribute to a blank page instead (this results in one more request, but it's a lot less annoying than the warning).
