How to fix cause of Firefox "connection not secure" message

Dealing with FireFox "Connection not secure.  Parts of this page are not secure (such as images).

WordPress website hosted at SiteGround.  https://www.sawgrasshoa.com

No broken padlock issues using Chrome, Safari, or Edge (Chome)

Refresh to clear cookies and site data then does show secure connection but comes back next time site is visited using Firefox.

I have cleared SiteGround dynamic and memory cache

Have cleared browser cache and rebooted

I am seeing same results on Windows browsers and MacOS browsers

I installed plugin Better Search Replace plugin by Delicious Brains which did find many http: references.  Was able to get clean (zero) records found after doing search and replace.

it could be some settings or library you have included that still pointing to an image that started with http instead of https.

could you verify that part? if some kind of image was pulled dynamically from somewhere?

Viewing page source and doing a search yields no http:  All references are https:

Now what appears different is, when I clear Firefox cache, close Firefox, relaunching the site will display the padlock with bang icon.  Navigating to other links on the site then appear clean, ( no warnings ).  So just the first time hitting the site shows the security warning.  Subsequent navigation to the home page is fine.
