Browser exchanging http/https

Anyone have issue with browser downgrading a string from https: to http ?

I have that happening on the "Duluth " clothing website www.duluthtrading.com and others.

What happens when you type www.duluthtrading.com is the usual header http s does not work. Instead the http page is displayed. You get a screen minus a lot of frames, etc. mostly plain text

I don't get that on the Duluth http page. It looks normal to me. Then when I go to the checkout page, it switches to https exactly as it's supposed to. Same is true on every other catalog page I go to. You may want to check your ad blocker settings, and run a "full system" virus scan.

This is usually a browser setting. What Browser are you using?

I suspect what's happening is that the sites on which you're seeing this have a large farm of servers for displaying their merchandise and a few servers with SSL certificates for secure transactions. SSL requires a small financial cost for the certificates itself plus higher maintenance requirements and per-session system demands, so some companies want to push traffic that doesn't need to be secured off to the non-SSL web farm.

I moved my personal email off yahoo years ago because they refused for years to maintain ssl connections for email, once you authenticated to the SSL server the connection dropped back down to plain-text communication for all your actual email traffic. I think they eventually fixed that, but way too late for me.
