My website is forcing ssl and the padlock is green for 2 seconds and then turns gray. No http in the source and everything should be ok. So I was wondering if letsencrypt ssl has some technical features that needs to be enabled when the cert is issued which would then restricts a green padlock from showing? I also read somewhere that google would be rolling out the gray padlock instead of a green. But unsure if this is the case.
Do you get the same effect from different browsers?
Have you checked you site at: https://www.whynopadlock.com/
Hi! Thanks for a quick reply. The address is https://parturi-manner.fi
I can’t see any mixed content. Perhaps you have more experience and can detect it
I’ve used several tools to check for mixed content and also basic checks with chrome dev tools and looking at the source for http. + other miscellaneous things.
I also went as far as to convert interlinking URLs in my database to https and also manually modified some of the Wordpress plugins using =“http”
It may be as simple as: DV certs don’t light up in green on address bar.
There is no mixed content warning. Chrome:
Chrome has removed the “green lock”.
Thanks for the reply. Yes, this is one of the tools that I have used to check the site and get a green check on all steps. Result:

So basically applying old standards my site should have a green padlock but, it’s just as I thought that big G has removed this from newer chrome versions starting from Sept 2018. Why do I see a green padlock on some sites when browsing with my Chrome browser maybe just a coincidence?
There are other types of certificate validations.
Some will still show as green:
Yeah! This is what I’m leaning towards. But have not found any hard proof.
