I believe this is due to importing a insecure JavaScript file onto the search page. Chrome has recently been updated to block insecure content loading on a https site.

I will talk to the guy that runs the site to get the import changed to a secure import.

Thank you for bring this to our attention.

I think this code might be problematic:

GNOME's online help at is only accessible via http not https. I just added a line to our html build script to change URLS to https. Anyone who is duplicating our help on their site (LoCo's for instance) on non-https sites will likely want to remove that line from html/fix-urls.sed.
