same issue over here.. https.. no images, just started this morning.
using seamonkey can probably fix by relaxing security, but why should I? SD please fix.

Yep, same here. I won't browse any site over HTTP that has a login. And why would anyone hard code the protocol? Let the browser handle picking that. Otherwise you're in for a bad time....as evidenced here.

The site had a glitch this morning but it should be cleared up. Let us know if you are still having issues.

you can temporarily fix the https issue by either telling your browser to allow mixed content (main page HTTPS but stylesheets are HTTP)

or by forcing HTTPS on

css.slickdealscdn.com
js.slickdealscdn.com
static.slickdealscdn.com

they seem to be breaking up the content to multiple domains but this might be a mistake since the browser then has to do a dns lookup for each subdomain

note to the devs, who probably already know this but just in case, you can fix this by using protocol-less urls in the html - all modern browsers support this, even IE6

ie.

http://css.slickdealscdn.com/blah
becomes
//css.slickdealscdn.com/blah

I concur. Forcing css, js and static.slickdealscdn.com to use HTTPS is a workaround for the problem. Thanks.

Site is still broke as of this post; using Chrome. I don't know if two days before Christmas ( aka the great shopping holiday ) was the best time to roll out this change for a site that deals with hot deals. Be back later this year maybe.

dns lookups are non-blocking (can run simultaneously)

otth
browser's maximum concurrent connections to the same domain is much lower than dns lookups [blogspot.com], but splitting contents on different domains, the browser can simultaneously load more contents

The issue seems to be fixed. Thanks.
