#11313 confirmed Bug

Mathjax plugin broken when ckeditor is used over https:// protocol

Reported by: Boson Au Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.3 Beta
Keywords: Cc:



  1. instantiate ckeditor with mathjax plugin installed using https protocol.
  2. clicking mathjax throws error in console:
Chrome:"[blocked] The page at '[site with https]' was loaded over     HTTPS, but ran insecure content from '': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS."

in Firefox: "[14:41:12.367] Blocked loading mixed active content "" @ https://[site]"



according to the Mathjax website:

their CDN does not offer https support and instead, asks users to use as an alternative address. It'd be great if ckeditor can test the protocol of the browser accessing the script and change the path accordingly. even better would be leaving plugin.js in the mathjax plugin folder as it was in version 4.3 beta.

Version: Beta

This isn't only Chrome. Firefox blocks mathjax as well while IE asks if it should display content or not (IE default setting).

Problem can be reproduced from CKEditor 4.3 beta.

I think it would be best if we could detect protocol ( and call correct URL.

It looks like mathjax's cdn works with https now. works for me.
