When I embed an HTTP frame inside an HTTPS parent, I get a security error in Chrome & Firefox. Is there any workaround to use an iframe tag without getting this error?

serve the iframed content on a secure page using secure web protocol or remove any active content (such as javascript) from the non-secure iframed page.

Another alternative I've had to use when the iFramed content comes from a different webiste that doesn't have https available is to iFrame a "proxy page" on the site I'm working on and use PHP's file_get_contents() on that page to get the info from the other site rather than iFraming the external site's info directly.
