Roger had to reboot to get the setting change to take hold on his
machine - that's anomaly as far as I'm aware. Most users should be able
to simply follow these steps to change their mixed content setting so it
does not prompt them to select whether or not to display the content:
I believe the default settings for Firefox allow mixed content to
display without prompting the user. This makes it seem like a friendlier
browser to launch myUVM from unless, like Andrew mentions below, you're
attempting to utilize an application that doesn't present well in Firefox.
