I have a weird one.  The SSL lock on certain https pages on one of my sites is not showing up.  Here is an example:

Showing up:

Not Showing up:

Here is the strange thing.  The SSL works and if you hit reload on that second example, you see the lock flash and go away.  If you double click the empty area where the lock should be, the certificate info shows up.

Has anyone seen this?

Not an answer, but might be of some help: the same thing happens in Mozilla, so your problem isn't IE exclusive.

Thank humeniuk, that does help.

astaec, this server isn't running OWA so I'm not sure if that could be it, but good find!

Ok, I'm an idiot... I had a slight overlook.  I had some images pathed to an http instead of relatively pathing them so they were coming from an unsecure connection making the icon go away.

I was about to post that I got a 'some content not encrypted' type of message, but I guess you figured that out.  Let us know if that is it.
