I’ve been banging my head on this for a week now. IE9 has recently quit showing the Google map iframe on this site: http://www.friends.edu/ (mouse over the “Locations” tab on the left in the header). It has worked and just recently seems to be unfunctioning. I’ve tried everything from updating the Google code, messing with CSS, playing with IE’s security and privacy settings and it just doesn’t work. On a rare occasion, I’ll see it once, but on subsequent page refreshes, all I get is the white box. It appears to work in every other browser fine.
The only time I can get it to work is when I have IE9 set to “Document Mode: IE8 standards”. With IE9 Standards, it’s a white box. Any ideas?
It looks like you’re loading the map in an <iframe> with HTTPS. I got the following error in IE’s console:
SEC7111: HTTPS security is compromised by http://maps.gstatic.com/mapfiles/myplaces/mp4.png
Do you have to load the map with HTTPS? Does the problem go away if you change it to just HTTP?
Right, that’s the same message I get. The code is what is generated by Google. I suppose it could be changed, but not sure. I would think that it would probably still generate that same message as there may be other bits on the page under HTTPS. worth a try I suppose.
Pretty much what I figured, it still throws the error after removing the https from Google iframe code. Thanks for the tip though, it was worth trying.
