-=====Firefox Enhanced Security Blocks Linked Content in ANGEL===== 
  
-Mozilla introduced Mixed Content Blocking in the latest version of Firefox (23).  Intended as a security response to "man in the middle"​ attacks, this feature blocks mixed content by default unless ​ specifically allowed during each page visit. ​ This specifically impacts non-https content loaded into a https page.  For more information about this security feature, please visit following Mozilla support article: 
-  
-[[https://​support.mozilla.org/​en-US/​kb/​how-does-content-isnt-secure-affect-my-safety?​as=u&​utm_source=inproduct]] 
-  
-While other browsers like Chrome and Internet Explorer implement Mixed Content Blocking in similar fashions, in most cases they allow the user to add exceptions or permanently allow access to mixed content from a particular page.  Firefox requires this content to be allowed on each page visit without a method to permanently allow content within that page only. 
- 
-In ANGEL, this impacts Link content items, embedded videos, RSS feeds, and potentially other areas of the system. ​ When a user tries to access one of these items while using Firefox they will not see the content. 
- 
-The video below shows an example of this issue and how to use the Page content item as a work-around.
