Have you recently copied content from a previous course or inserted a Quicklink (URL), in OAKS, only to find a blank page?  If so, you are not alone.  Recent updates to both Chrome and Firefox prevent unsecure content (i.e, http://) from being displayed on a secure page (i.e, https:// or  OAKS) without permission.  This means that while the content was added correctly, the browser is blocking it from opening.
