I run Google Chrome with switch "--allow-running-insecure-content" for a long time and had no troubles at any sites related to running insecure until recently. It started to block certain JavaScript again regardless of the switch. For example, in Gmail I can't open any emails because of this. Console shows errors "The page at https://mail.google.com/... ran insecure content from http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs...". Is there a way to allow running insecure content in Chrome?


Make sure all Chrome processes are stopped.

Some extensions run Chrome in background and you need to start a whole new process with the command line. Try removing any running Chrome process in the tray (there is an Exit entry in the contextual menu of the Chrome logo in the tray). If needed, kill the chrome processes in Task manager.
