I have no idea how to fix this or if it can be fixed. If I hit the page with https or a secure js file directly, it won't load the page or js with the security settings set to HIGH. I get a "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded" or the page loads partially. If I change the Internet security settings to Medium-High it loads fine. Is there any way to resolve this on my end so a user doesn't have to change their settings in IE?

For what it's worth, Medium-High is the default setting.  Most users will have that.

I appreciate the feedback but I'm trying to figure out how to resolve this problem without changing the browser settings. My QA dept. tests at a high security setting. One thing that didn't occur to me is that the secure code is served from a different sub domain. Would it make a difference if the code was moved to the same sub domain?

If you mean page from a domain and javascript from another or a subdomain, I can see that being that blocked.  Move it and find out.

FYI...If you want to see what I'm talking about go to https://profile.ea.com/ that page contains references to our Omniture js code.

Change "File Download" setting to "Enable" in the security settings.
