Youtube is blank in Firefox 23.0.1

It looks like the Youtube, in a widget connector macro, does not work anymore. I think the problem came with the new release of FF. It seems like the video is taking space in a page, but is not showing.

Tried in other browsers: IE, Chrome and Safari and it works here.

Hi Torstein, as you have discovered, this is due to Firefox 23's new security feature to block mixed active content by default. For the sake of other users that may come across this post, I'm going to link to the KB article here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Widget+Connector+not+Displaying+Embedded+Content+when+Using+Firefox+23+or+Above

Hi there,

You're correct! I've just had a test, and it behaves exactly as you described. I've filed a bug to have this investigated by our developers, so make sure you add yourself as a watcher to keep track of the progress.

Cheers!
