    No so much a bug, rather undesirable behaviour, but when viewing an SSL-encrypted page (https), requests from the toolbar trigger Internet Explorer's Security Warning dialog, namely:

    Security Warning
    Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?
    This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.

    Having received the above message on a page which I knew to be 100% SSL served, I performed a checked of the request headers being sent, and discovered that the toolbar was sending 3 separate POST requests to a URL similar to the following:

    Are there any plans to use SSL for toolbar communications and/or alternative methods to quieten these (admittedly quite proper and correct) warnings?

    oh thank you so much for identifying this @$^@$ nuisance - so it's Diigo - this is VERY frustating / and it occurs far, far too much / well i've had zero responses on my own partial list of problems with diigo / so i guess i'll have to start yet another search for some tagging program that actually works the way one should work

    I have the same problem.
    Uninstalling diigo toolbar and then reinstalling does not help.
