iframe snippet fails under https

When you use flashproxy in an HTTPS iframe, you will get all kinds of Security-Related errors like "SecurityError" (IE) and "This operation is insecure" (Firefox). This seems to be caused by trying to establish an unenrypted (i.e. `insecure') Websocket under HTTPS.

Under Firefox this can be worked around by letting the user set network.websocket.allowInsecureFromHTTPS, but there is no such thing for IE.

Thanks for this. It's not a bug. Please see FlashProxyFAQ. We won't do anything to change how WebSocket interacts with HTTPS, because it's one of the things likely to change completely with #5578. It doesn't really affect the usefulness of the proxy, because there are enough HTTP-hosted ones that it still works.
