we have a Joomla! 3.8.13 on https When I go to the article manager (default- tinymce) and try to add an image, then i see a whitescreen in the modal window. The reason is that it sends the request to http instead of https (admin uses https), so mixed content error

this is the url it sends the request to: http://url/administrator/?option=com_content&view=articles&layout=modal&tmpl=component&d33ccba6239ca044b81e08cdb65a6f71=1&editor=jform_articletext

would be grateful for a hint :) thanks

I solved this issue, the problem turned out to be non-standard .htaccess file

When clicking the image button, tinymce open an iframe thus making a request to https://url/administrator/index.php?.. and the server redirected http://url/administrator/?.. (with http and without index.php)

it then redirected back to https (as the force ssl was set in admin), but the browser already threw a mixed-content error

so changing the .htaccess to a standard joomla file fixed the issue

Just for a hint. Since these links in article editor are created within Joomla with adding a JPATH_BASE at the beginning of the url thus most probably in Admin global configuration->server settings you should set force SSL to Entire site value. Then the link should automatically be https for the modal window in the editor. I hope it will solve your issue.
