    Can you edit your answer so that your fix is more clear? The above doesn't make sense.

To clarify the above answer, you need to update the "site_url" variable that is hard-wired in /system/expressionengine/config/config.php. And if using MSM, in the index.php file of the secondary domain.

Change the URL to begin with either "https://", or simply "//" if you have your site otherwise set up to load either over http or https.
