      Description

      The product msg frame at the bottom of common task page, http://java.sun.com/glassfish/productmsg.html is redirected to https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/s/glassfish/productmsg.html which uses secure protocol.
      This is causing issue in the console when running on IE 10, which secure admin is not on, which is the out-of-box behavior.
      Once we load this page, IE thinks the whole page is secure, and complains to a lot of non-secure request for images, js, etc. and for iframe, it will just rejects to load.
      This causes couple issue reported, BugDB # 16542371 and GLASSFISH-20157.

      Since IE 10 is in the supported matrix, we need to fix https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/s/glassfish/productmsg.html to not use secure protocol.

          a webtracker has been opened for a while, but still not resolved.
          A decision is made by John Clingan and Shreedhar Ganapathy to remove the promotion frame altogether. We can add it back in the next release if marketing wants it back.

          What is the impact on the customer of the bug?
          If we leave the promotion frame on, there is issue in support IE 10 and we are mixing secure and insecure contents. GLASSFISH-19987 filed by Fishcat is also about this issue.

          What is the cost/risk of fixing the bug?
          The risk is minimal. Just comment out the code of adding this promotion frame in the bottom of the common task page.

          Is there an impact on documentation or message strings?
          No. I checked that the online help page for common task doesn't mention about this promotion frame.

          Which tests should QA (re)run to verify the fix did not destabilize GlassFish?
          Usual test suite from QA relating to console. Specifically tried this on IE 10.

          Which is the targeted build of 4.0 for this fix?
          The fix is ready, not sure if it will make it into b85 or b86.

          If this an integration of a new version of a component from another project,
          what are the changes that are being brought in? This might be list of
          Jira issues from that project or a list of revision messages.
