"Help" plugin with HTTPS
« on: April 25, 2015, 07:54:36 PM »
My Roundcube installation is only available via https. However, http://docs.roundcube.net/doc/help/ does not exist in an https version. As a consequence, the help plugin creates iframe tags with http URLs within an https page. Firefox rejects such mixed requests and the help screen shows an empty page. I've read that IE also does not like mixing insecure protocols into a secure page.

There are (at least) two workarounds possible on my end:
1. I ask my users to set security.mixed_content.block_active_content = false in their Firefox browsers. Not a good idea.
2. I host a copy of the user documentation on my web server so it can be accessed via https. Haven't checked the copyright situation...

I think it would be easier if the help pages were available via http and https. If the plugin could automagically pick the appropriate protocol, that would be cool for sites that support both protocols. Sites that support only one can edit $config['help_source'] in the config file.
