Default https question

Hi

I have question about https

I am using mozila to access gmail as https://mail.google.com/mail

Why mozilla prompts me the alert box?

"You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party."

How mozilla knows I have data not encrypted?

ls https secured?

Thank you

Yes, the 's' at the end means it uses SSL to provide a secure
connection. If you have elements on the page that have an http: prefix,
then mozilla and other browsers will complain about it.

You can turn this notification feature off somewhere in the Firefox
preferences (haven't got it infront of me right now to tell you
exactly where :S)

I use Mozilla Firefox v.3.0.16 (32 bit) on CentOS 5.4
I am *not* getting warnings like that, with Gmail or with the URL you
posted above. Which version of Mozilla (Firefox?) are you using?

I have seen warnings like that, but not with Gmail. That means that
some of the information on the web page you are accessing is not
encrypted.

Yes, it is encrypted, but sometimes not all of the information on a
web page is encrypted.
