Hi @JuliusPIV ,
Your guess is correct. In your website, it redirects to an insecure HTTP connection to implement the download function, resulting in a mixed content download, which ultimately leads to this issue.
In order to solve this problem, you need to use the matching policy: InsecureContentAllowedForUrls. It is used to create a list of URL patterns to specify sites that can display or download insecure mixed content (HTTP content on HTTPS sites). Located under this path:
Administrative Templates/Microsoft Edge/Content settings.
For more details, please refer to this docment: Learn about Microsoft Edge and mixed content downloads.
Hope this can help you.

Thanks again for following up! I did test this but wasn't seeing a positive change. I will retry again within the next 24 hours and post back.
Good Morning @XuDong Peng-MSFT
Thanks again for your earlier reply and follow up. I can confirm that this did indeed fix the issue so thank you for that! However after making the policy change the issue persisted until I restarted Edge. Should these types of changes apply while Edge is running? Is that normal?
On that page many of the settings support "Dynamic Policy Refresh" which to me suggests that Edge will 'see' policy changes like that and apply & enforce them while Edge it's running. I could be very wrong here but I have not found any good documentation on Dynamic Policy Refresh. Can you point me to some documentation that would further explain what Dynamic Policy Refresh is, how it works etc.?
Otherwise thanks again for sorting out the original issue!
Hi @JuliusPIV ,
I am glad to hear that your problem has been resolved. Regarding the question you mentioned, when you modify the group policy, you can navigate to
edge://policyto see if they have been configured correctly. If not, it means that the policy has not been refreshed yet.
Dynamic Policy Refresh, after some searching, I did not find the relevant document, so I am afraid I can't explain it. I recommend that you can send feedback to the relevant team to supplement the relevant documentation on Dynamic Policy Refresh. Just press
Alt+ Shift+ ito edit the content of feedback and then send. Thank for your understanding.
