This is also posted in that HTTP Versus HTTPS Forum. It’s become so Convoluted and this Info is Lost somewhere near the End of it.

I thought it was important enough to Post on it’s own. I am NOT a Computer Expert and don’t really know how serious this is! Management might be able to handle it as No Big Deal?

The Screen Shot Cutouts are ALL from Google. They are NOT in any particular Order.

Exactly what maps are you talking about? Here is one working on your profile page (screenshot taken about a minute ago):

This is NOT a firewall setting. This is a GOOGLE ISSUE. What else that’s tied into GOOGLE might this affect.

It Relates directly to NOT Being an HTTPS Secure Site as stated by Google in the above GOOGLE Page Cut Outs!

Yes. Those are the Maps. To ME it is also darkened.

This what my Home Page looks like right now. It’s advanced from “Darkened” to the Message shown. Except if you click on the “OK”in the First Message Above it brings back the Darkened Map.

Then it sure sounds like something on your end causing the problem IMO. Works fine here.

Reading the error message, it looks like your browser refused to open the link to Google Maps as it was coming in from a http web page, not the https. If you open a new browser window you should be able to get to it directly.

Try downloading a different browser and trying it to see if it’s a browser issue or computer issue.
I did the windows 10 reset fresh start(it deletes bloat ware) and I have issues with video play back in firefox and edge. So it was something that was deleted causing the issue just haven’t had time to reinstall thing to find out what it is. Good luck rick and I hope it’s one of the first item you try my luck it will be the last thing I try.

The last refresh made me want to chew nails. Continuous BSODs as I have some specialized setups on my computer.

Rick,

I see the same thing on your profile page:

My PC is running Windows 10 1803. The browser being used is Firefox 62.0.3 64 bit.

When I browse to maps.google.com typed into the address bar of Firefox, I see Maps as expected.

Could Firefox be refusing to load an HTTP api call?

NOTE: I am not a web developer and don’t play one on TV.

Maybe there have been Google maps api changes that are causing the map call to fail.

When I activate the Firefox developer tools and look at the console I see:

I see these error messages in the dev console:


Google Maps JavaScript API warning: NoApiKeys
https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#no-api-keys

Map.addControl is no longer supported in the Google Maps Javascript API v2.
Please visit https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/v2/v2tov3 to
migrate your application to v3.

Sounds like the site has some code updates to do?
