Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2010 1:28 PM (in response to Felix Leiter)I appreciate your help.
This issue does not affect only Safari, but all browsers, and it appears to be a security issue because it prevents access to Gmail's https main page. I looked into the Gmail's help site, but there doesn't seem to be any fix for this. There is some conflict with the parental controls that I still haven't figured out.Macbook Air SSD, iMac 24" 2.8Ghz, Iphone, Ipod Touch, Apple TV, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 4 G Ram

I tried the same thing today on 10.5.8, and got the same results, even with https://www.google.com added to 'always allow these sites'
I'll test more later, to see if this applies to any secure site

Currently Being ModeratedApr 10, 2010 1:52 PM (in response to atobteam)Finally!!!!! This solution works! Yea!
There are two scenarios I know of:
1. If you have users for whom under "Parental Controls/Content" you've chosen "Allow access only to these websites" (they can only get to the websites that are bookmarked by you) and if Google Mail was already a bookmark, then just do this: click the plus sign below the list in "Parental Controls/Content/Allow access only to these websites", and choose "Add Bookmark." On the pop-up, name the site "goog" or anything you want; then type in: le100.net in the box asking for an address. This will produce a new bookmark (named "goog" or whatever you've chosen), but will in effect just be a dummy or slave bookmark that you'll never use, but it'll allow you to get to your user's google mail sign in page by hitting the old google mail bookmark he or she used to hit.
Second scenario (I have both scenarios in my home): if you have users for whom under "Parental Controls/Content" you've chosen "Try to Limit Access to Adult Websites Automatically", click the "Customize" button and then on the top of the pop-up, under "Always Allow These Websites," click the plus button and then add: le100.net . Then click OK. This user will now be able to get to his or her google mail sign in page.1.83 Ghz Intel Core Duo iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3)

Currently Being ModeratedJul 6, 2010 1:55 PM (in response to Felix Leiter)I found this from KB HT2900
https note: For websites that use SSL encryption (the URL will usually begin with https), the Internet content filter is unable to examine the encrypted content of the page. For this reason, encrypted websites must be explicitly allowed using the Always Allow list. Encrypted websites that are not on the Always Allow list will be blocked by the automatic Internet content filter.
If gmail uses SSL you will need to add it.Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
