Share IE bug when using HTTPS

Question asked by ofrxnz on Sep 24, 2008
After I placed Labs 3 (build 1032 i think) behind a HTTPS connection handled within tomcat, I receive the following error on every page load within Internet Explorer (6 and 7)

"This page contains both secure and nonsecure items.  Do you want to display the nonsecure items?"

I believe this is caused by non-https, non relitive references back to alfresco proper. 

so when the  log in script (or any other one) hits Alfresco,  it seems to go to http://server/alfresco and not https://server/alfresco nore does it seem to use a relative location.  As a result, IE harasses the user on every single page throughout the entirety of share.  I have found a work around in the IE security policy but i do not want to resort to this. 

I think I have traced this bug in the login page down to the "slingshot-login.js" file which reference the following variable
context.properties["alfRedirectUrl"];
  I am unable to find where this reference leads.  The closest thing i can find is the "urlrewrite.xml" file but I dont know if that will fix the issue. 

Any ideas on how to redirect Share to connect to Alfresco using https://server/alfresco over the standard HTTPS port 443 or has anyone experienced anything similar?

Thanks

Adam
