Some content on the page is being served up from an unsecure (http) connection.  Either exclude the content or arrange for the content to be served securely (https).

This message is most offensive when I access my online Banking with Bank of America.   Could you be more specific on how to 1) exclude the content or 2) arrange for the content to be served securely (htts)?
Thanks,

Since you don't own the site, there's nothing you can do about it other than to answer the question ("Do you want to view only web content downloaded securely?") when it pops up.  Your best bet is to contact Bank of America and let them know it is happening and that it's annoying you.

Honestly, it's more than annoying - there's real potential for a security risk here.  I'd always answer "yes" to that question when on my bank's web site.
