Protocol Relative URLs not working

Problem:

I am using Protocol Relative URLs / relative URLs when referencing css and javascript. When I access my page over https / ssl, the css and js is being called over http / no ssl.

It is resulting in the following javascript error:

[blocked] The page at ‘https://www.domain.com/page.php’ was loaded over HTTPS, but ran insecure content from ‘https://www.domain.com/style.css‘: this content should also be loaded over HTTPS.

Solution:

If you are using the base tag within your header, the protocol being used in your base tag will be used when calling scripts using Protocol Relative URLs / relative URLs.

<head>     <base href='http://www.domain.com/page.php' /> </head>

If you need to use the base tag in your head, make sure to adjust it so that it uses https when using ssl, and http when not using ssl.
