This is an Internet Explorer setting issue. In IE, click Tools > Internet Options and open the Security Tab. Select the Internet Zone (or whatever zone the site is in) and click the Custom Level button. Scroll down to the Miscellaneous settings and make sure that Display Mixed Content is set to Prompt or Allow. OK your way out. Prompt is safer, as you do usually will want to know if parts of a page are insecure before you enter any sensitive data.

My question was to the OP not to SoJ -- the delay in my posting was while I tried to find the MSKB article that explains a change they recently made with an IE uptdate that swapped the correct answer from what it used to be in that popup to the other one because too many people were chosing the wrong one....
By the time I found I couldn't find it and posted SoJ had already posted.
But here is a link to the MSDN Blogs:
which applies to IE 9 as well and explains at the end the bit that I remembered:
<< We changed the wording of the mixed content (The mixed content refers to HTTP and HTTPS content ) warning dialog to "Do you want to view only the web content that was delivered securely?" The buttons are "Yes/No".
If you want to display mixed content in IE 8 you should click "No". The previous versions of IE asked the user "Do you want to display the secure and non secure content?" You click "Yes" If you want to display mixed content. >>
