So my wife tries to log in to a couple of websites (chase.com and ingdirect.com) which have previously been kosher, and Firefox thinks they are "partially encrypted."

When visiting these sites on my machine, both sites appear secure. I've checked the security certificate on both machines, they are identical, down to the MD5 fingerprint, but for some reason firefox doesn't recognize the cert on my wife's machine. We are both using FF 3.6 under Win7.

Though I am loath to use it, Internet Exploder thinks ingdirect is secure, but agrees with Firefox that chase.com is unsecure. This actually is true on both computers...

Anyone seen this before? (Translation: help me look smart in front of my wife!)

That's kinda weird, I just went to their pages and both are completely secure. What version of Firefox are you using? Up in the address bar, click on the icon to the left of the address, click more information, and it should show you details about the encryption among other things. Both sites from my view are using High-grade encryption.

My sites for reference:
https://www.chase.com/
https://secure.ingdirect.com/myaccount/ ... ype=Client

Firefox 3.6 on both machines, IE 8.0.6. Both sites appear secure on my computer in Firefox, but chase does not under IE. Neither appeared secure on my wife's machine under firefox, but today ING does. Oy. I'm using the exact same URLs you just gave.

Interestingly, I notice that Chase *appears* secure while it's loading (there's a padlock next to the URL in IE and a blue field in Firefox) but that indication disappears when the page finishes loading.

Intewesting...
