I have 2 flash swf banners that I have embedded into my HTTPS website... in Firefox they work fine, however, in IE, I get a popup asking me if I want to display the "non-Secure Items" (swfs)

I know how to change my browser settings so that I can stop the warning, however,

what I WANT TOO DO is fix the code within the HTML pages so that this warning NEVER pops up for anyone visiting my website.

The link to my site is below

NexBillPay

Basically, I do not want people who come to my wesite to get scared off due to this message popping up. I need to know how I can re-code the pages so that the following.....

This page contain both secure and nonsecure items.
Do you want to display the nonsecure items?


DOES NOT popup .....

Can someone help me out here? The first flash object is on the INDEX.HTM page and the other object is on all of the pages under the "SERVICES" menu.
Thanks!

If the links you are including to the swf files are not on https, you will get this issue - you need to make sure these swf files are also on https when included (i.e. https://www.example.com/my.swf)

You have two instances in your code where you are using 'http' where they should be 'https'...

   'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0',
   codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
