Is anyone having an issue with their Ad Balance pasbacks not working?

I wanted to try an experiment so I set my Ad Balance to 16% (93% earnings) to see how my passback ads would work - but it appears they're not displaying. There are just blank spaces in the ad slots. Has anyone else noticed this? They've worked for me before...

No, I am using backup ads and as far as I can tell they appear.

How exactly are you implementing your code?

Thanks. I set a url in Adsense and then just place the code on that page at the url. It's always worked in the past...

Have you checked the code on the page by visiting the URL directly?

With the help of Digital Throttle, I've figured out the problem. At least the one I'm having. The issue is happening to me in Chrome (not Safari). I haven't tried other browsers yet but I'm almost certain this is a Chrome-related issue. At the top right corner, at the end of the URL bar, there's a little grey shield with a red X. The pages where this is happening are https and green (Secure) - but this little icon, when hovered over, states: This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources.

When I click "Load unsafe scripts" and then "OK", the ads instantly display... The passback ad code I'm using IS Digital Throttle's "secure" code - so that shouldn't be an issue. Here's the "shield" I'm referring to: [s18.postimg.org...]

Does anyone have ideas why this might be happening? This did not become an issue until recently...
