Problem: cfhtmltopdf fails to generate pdf, when source has "http" protocol in url.

Method: Access the below code in ColdFusion 11
<cfhtmltopdf source="" /> 

Result: coldfusion.document.webkit.PDFgErrorHandler$ServiceManagerConversionException: Error occurred while generating PDF.

Expected: It should generate pdf irrespective of the protocol used, whether "http" or "https".

Workaround: Use https instead of http. For e.g. <cfhtmltopdf source="" /> and it works.
