Angry html to pdf error: Blocking URL request with scheme: https

I have just converted from an older 32 bit version to a 64 bit Windows version of Calibre. I use Calibre to convert html files to pdf format.

The input html has links to images such as the following:
<p><img src="https://www-personal.umich.edu/~bobwolfe/genbob/1861_Harrison-Union_Elkhart_IN_Nash-Geil.jpg"><BR>1861 map of Rohrer lots</p>

The older version creates a pdf file and the images are visible, as expected.

The 64 bit version creates a pdf file with a small icon in the place of each image and the CalibreLog.tex file has many lines with the following message:
Blocking URL request with scheme: https

How can I fix this?
Thank you

It is the upgrade in versions of Calibre, rather than the 64 bit versus 32 bit that causes the problem. The new 32 bit version has the same problem and will not display an image with an https: URL. I have reverted to the old version (3.20) which is working fine. I hope this gets fixed, because the new version seems to have some useful features.

Conversion does not support remote images. That it worked with 3.x was an accident, not an intended feature.
