Hi Mike, hi all,

Mike, I found out why you now get the purple task box again: OSM made
a change to how the OSM website works with secure connections
yesterday which fixes the issue with the purple task outline loading
in iD.

This means everyone should start seeing the purple task outline in the
iD editor now!

Cheers,
Blake
