The most annoying part of Internet Explorer (IE) 8 is the "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?" popup that forces you to continually click "No".
Maybe it's useful when doing Internet banking but I get it every time I open up Blogger. Why wouldn't I want to see the whole page?
The solution is simple:
Tools / Internet Options / Security / Custom level / Miscellaneous / Display mixed content
and change the option from "Prompt" to "Enable".
Reply "Yes" to the "Do you want to change this option?" question and OK out.
