Cachepage username links in MSIE broken?

For the last couple of days, I've noticed that many (not all) username links at the top left of each cache page are broken when accessed from MSIE (on Win 7). They seem to work from Firefox.

 

What happens is that I get taken to a "you have to login to view this" page. Logging in (again) takes you to the same "you must login" page. I'm guessing a subtle server change has happened.

 

I now have to highlight and copy the user name, goto my profile page and then to "Find other geocachers", paste their name and behold the profile opens.

I can't test with MSIE, because I don't use MS Windows, but the only thing I see is that the cache page is displayed as

https://www.geocaching.com/[...]

while the link to the cache owner's name is linked to

http://www.geocaching.com/[...]

Thanks for the above.

 

I did open in new window and got a "log-in". Then I edited the address manually to be https:// and the page opened properly.

 

How do we contact Groundspeak to ask them to either make http:// work or to change the link to https:// ?

i think i'm having a similar problem with broken links, also while on IE, 9 to be exact. while looking at a cache page the click to "view larger map" is not doing that, works just fine on google. earlier, yesterday, i had some half loaded stuff on some cache pages. some had no profile image with a log, another was the D and T rating was gibberish. not sure if those where just an IE problem as i managed to work around them, so i didn't have to go to google.

From what I've read GS is migrating the site so that everything uses https.
