Explorer security warning

We made a php based program for my customer. He asked for https secure connection.

The problem is that using Internet Explorer after entering our system (after writing in name and password), Internet Explorer gives a message:
"Security Warning. Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered
      securely?This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS
connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage."

Firefox doesn't give any message.

How can we make this message not to popup?

Thank you

Make sure your page does not include any information from other pages that is loaded without SSL.  Frames, iFrame, javascript, etc.

No, doctype shouldn't cause that.  If you have any scripts or includes make sure to check those.  Search your code for "http"

that isn't https so shouldn't make much of a difference to the SSL state
