In my FireFox (Aurora , 23.0a2) 3rd Party embed content was blocked because its being served from a http url while my url sits on https. Even Chrome showed a lot of warnings but showed the content.

Blocked loading mixed active content "http://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?feed=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2Faudiog%2Fplaylists%2Fwink%2F%3Flimit%3D10&embed_uuid=f20ac15c-472e-4acf-b1c3-5fe04c7244c3&stylecolor=&embed_type=widget_standard"
Blocked loading mixed active content "http://www.youtube.com/embed/cTBG_XZHhzQ?list=UUoVtBqyLqhg-wVfpkPGzUdw"

The only reason why we went for https here was because this is an FB app which requires https - I think this is mandatory when viewing https://facebook.com.

Are newer versions of browsers going to block non-https content on a https page?

It is standard for browsers to want all content on the page be secured to stop man-in-the-middle attacks. You will need to modify the code of the app to adjust the URL of all content based on the URL the user requested.
