I need some education on the error in my attached image.  Why do I see it?  What does it mean?  How to get rid of it or resolve the underlying problem?

"Warning ... unauthenticated content"

Thank you! unauth

That is a configuration of your browser; specifically a security aspect of using SSL (secure websites) which tells you that there is both secure content, and unsecured content appearing on the same page.
These may, or may not originate from the same server. Sometimes it is from a 3rd party, (like advertising) who's servers are not using SSL.

You can alter this, by changing Security settings.

How can I determine which content is not secure?


And what settings would I change (if I decide to go that route)?

Thanks!

The site in question is:

http://www.piratewear.com

You can create a new user then sign-in.  That is when I get the "lock" icon at the bottom right and the message when I double-click on the icon.
