    The latest version of Google Chrome Browser does a very strange thing. It sends HTTPS header with value 1 which the is_ssl() WordPress function reads and sets the HTTPS as TRUE.

    What this results in is that even though your WordPress is not set to use SSL and no security certificate is present all files like CSS, JavaScripts, Images even all links are set to go through HTTPS connection.

    The problem occurs only on the latest Google Chrome v.44 and everything works perfectly on Firefox, Opera, Safari and even Google Chrome version 43.

    This results in a majority of WordPress installs being broken (completely broken layout and functionality) and reported as unsafe.

    We made a small WordPress Plugin to fix this issue on the affected sites. If you are facing such problems make sure to use the plugin below:
