No menu icons in livemap, if using SSL page

+6 votes

If I access the livemap via SSL link https://project-gc.com/Tools/LiveMap the menu icons on the left (filter, settings, info, menu) are invisible.

Accessing the livemap via HTTP as http://project-gc.com/Tools/LiveMap the icons are shown.

Okay, I could always use the HTTP link, but at least the greasemonkey browser extension always links to the HTTPS page.

Tested this with Firefox on Linux and Windows.

It seems to be because the images are loaded from another domain name and the URLs are defined with HTTP protocol. The quickest fix would be for the Live Map to always use HTTPS for those images, since an HTTP page loading HTTPS resources is fine but the other way around can cause issues with some browsers.
... or steps could be taken to convert project-gc.com entirely to HTTPS as has been suggested before:

I am aware that the current setup with a CDN complicates things somewhat, but it should be doable.
I would love it as well if this could be fixed. I hate having to go into Firefox just to use the Live Map.
