Firefox site information, connection to website, padlock is showing as insecure

I recently updated My Computer Tips but didn't notice that my website was showing as not being fully secure.

After clicking on the padlock it was showing that some of the images on my site may not be secure. I checked the source code over but could not find the issue.

I was then redirected to the following site where I entered my website address. The site then scanned my pages and searched for non secure images, scripts and css files.

Once complete I expanded one of the page links, which pointed me to the code that displays the W3C CSS in the footer of my website.

Looking at the code I noticed the path to the image was showing as http:// and not https:// so I updated the code

<a href="https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer"> <img style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px" src="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss" alt="Valid CSS!" />


<a href="https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer"> <img style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px" src="https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss" alt="Valid CSS!" />


After making the changes and refreshing the page my site was showing as secure.
