Has anyone experienced ( intermittently) a “waiting for TLS handshake” notice when opening forums? The browser just sits there for minutes sometimes. Using latest MAC Safari

Just everyday! It's the mixed content on the site - images served with links as http:// and the rest as https://

Ads to the right have most of their images as http:// . The rest of the page elements - ARF header, etc are all served as https://

At work, I have to use my phone to browse ARF - the security settings don't allow the mixed content - something all browsers and OS'es are going to eventually.

Really, how hard is it to change a few URLs on a page?? Simple to fix - just edit the image URLs to https:

Example - instead of http://antiqueradios.com/forums/images/ ... iofarm.jpg

make it https://antiqueradios.com/forums/images/retroradiofarm.jpg

I have that problem occasionally. I don’t wait for it when it is just sitting there. I just reload the page and 9 times out of 10, it immediately loads.

I confident that the browser writers or plug-in gurus will offer a dynamic content editor plug-in. Something to blot out the sluggish loading content and move on...

I get some relief from uBlock Origin, bonus it does not bloc Alan's right margin content. But, the Google what-zit is still an occasional pain. Adding these delays to Comcast. data throttling and the web can be sorry indeed. At times I have simply shut it down and get some useful work done... :D

YMMV

And I've had no problems at all. I use either Window 8.1 or XP depending on whatever.

With IE-11 on Widows 10, I get a pop-up message at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds each time I click on a thread title telling me that "only secure content is displayed". No hanging, though. But the insecure content like the http:// ads at the right are displayed anyway. It bothered me at first but now I'm used to the pop-up message.

Lucky you. It's real and a pain. I've done all the troubleshooting - two different OS'es (Win7 AND Linux Mint) - keeping Firefox as the browser for both.

- Recreate profile - no effect.
- rename certsdb and recreate - no effect.

If I use Chromium, it throws up the "Site not safe" - ONLY on ARF - and allows me to proceed if I opt out of a secure connection. TLS handshake doesn't apply, as it's loading as http:

It all boils down to this - if the site is delivered via https - ALL items, images, scripts, and other content served should be served via https:. On ARF it's not - see my above post.

Edit: Looking at the page source, it seems a 10-minute editing of the default page would solve the problem. Firefox makes it easy - all the non-https: stuff is in red, along with some tags and varibles not related to the problem. Pretty much all images, with a few pages that just need the "s" added.

Not me. The properties of the display ads all show http. Strange.

Did y'all notice the mixed content issue was fixed? All https: and solid green lock in the address bar now. ARF passes through to my secure desktop at work without a problem.

Thanks! :D :D
