[bioontology-support] Visualization widget over https

Hello Stuart,

We use a 3rd party application called BioMixer to display the visualizations [1].  I’ve looked at their source code and they load some JavaScript libraries using the HTTP protocol, e.g. [2].

If you access our visualization widget using HTTPS protocol, the browser will block loading of the page because it detects that a subresource is using the insecure HTTP protocol.  Most browsers block loading of this type of “mixed content”, which is why you see a blank page.  Enabling the developer tools in a browser reveals the full text of the error:

16:58:44.847 Blocked loading mixed active content ""1 jquery.min.js:5:25689

I need to investigate if the BioMixer library is still being maintained, and get back to you on whether or not we can expect this to be fixed.
