Warning: Contains Unauthenticated Content

I have an https:// page on my server for retrieving secure info.

We have an SSL certificate and set the page up as secure in IIS.

However, in Firefox, when we hit the page, the lock has a slash through it and hovering over it, it says:
"Warning: Contains Unauthenticated Content"

What is that?

Also, in IE, it has a popup when you enter the page that says "This page contains secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecure items?"

Why is that? How do I make everything secure so it won't pop that?

Watch Question

When I had that problem, I was referencing either a stylesheey, external javascript, or image outside the secure directory.  All those things have to be secured for that message to go away.

Well, I had to remove all the http://www. code and use a virtual path and it no longer gives those errors.

Problem is when someone clicks a link on that page, it will take them to an https:// page now.

Oh well, I'll work on that problem next.
