Recently set up a server for a client and installed a Comodo Positive SSL certificate. In firefox everywhere on the website I can see the padlock icon which shows the Comodo verification, except the home page.

Click on any internal link and the padlock shows up. Just not on the home page which continues to say "Website does not provide identity information".

The website link is here: https://justcoolgear.com

Is there a configuration problem with my SSL installation or Apache config? How can I fix this so the home page validates as secure?

FYI: Even after you get the SSL padlock fixed it will continue to say: "Website does not provide identity information". I believe you have to buy a higher quality (quality = cost) certificate that maybe requires greater validation. – JMC Apr 21 '14 at 15:14
In the full "More Information" section of the padlock yes it does, but now the popup does say "Verified by COMODO CA Limited, The connection to this website is secure" which is what I was after. – billynoah Apr 21 '14 at 15:24

The problem is because you have some of the images hard-coded to load through http protocol on your index page. You should change the links to be protocol-agnostic by using //, e.g.:

<img src="http://example.com/image.png">

Change with:

<img src="//example.com/image.png">

These links will make content load through https if site is also using https and will use http if site is using http.

Example from index page:

<img alt="" src="http://s510779130.onlinehome.us/image/data/Category_logo/KNIVES.jpg" style="width: 225px; height: 163px; border-width: 2px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 2px; margin-right: 2px;" />

Thanks! That worked. Would upvote but rep is too low. For the record, I had checked all hardcoded links but since those links are dynamically loaded from the db I had overlooked them. – billynoah Apr 21 '14 at 15:16
