Hi,

I had the same problem. The iframe is created for menu measuring purposes. The reason you are getting the secure/insecure message is that the iframe does not have a secure source defined - the src attribute is not specified. To fix this, create a blank page on your secure server and then edit the menu4.js file, where it says:

                mf = Menu._measureFrame = document.createElement("IFRAME");
                var mfs = mf.style;
                mfs.position = "absolute";
                mfs.visibility = "hidden";
                mfs.left = "-100px";
                mfs.top = "-100px";
                mfs.width = "10px";
                mfs.height = "10px";
                mf.frameBorder = 0;
                document.body.appendChild( mf );

add the red line - substitute "/blank.html" with whatever you have named your blank secure page:

                mf = Menu._measureFrame = document.createElement("IFRAME");
                var mfs = mf.style;
                mfs.position = "absolute";
                mfs.visibility = "hidden";
                mfs.left = "-100px";
                mfs.top = "-100px";
                mfs.width = "10px";
                mfs.height = "10px";
                mf.frameBorder = 0;
                mf.src = "/blank.html"
                document.body.appendChild( mf );

This will fix it. BTW this will happen anytime you have any iframe without a secure source defined on a secure server.

I found the source of the problem: document.createElement("IFRAME")

This is located around line 228 of menu4.js

I'm not really sure why there is an iframe included...

Anyone know of a workaround?

I am experiencing problems with Menu 4 when used with SSL. When I click on a button, before the menu pops up, I receive a warning from IE6 stating that there are items which are NOT secure, do you want to view them?

I cannot get rid of this error.  I just don't see where Menu 4 is downloading something via http.  I forced the css file to https but that didn't help either.

Any ideas?

Other than that, Menu 4 kicks butt!!!
