Trouble with Paypal Standard auto return URL and SSL

I am running EE 4.6.18p, and have installed an SSL certificate on my server. I’ve followed the instructions at and forced SSL on all the critial pages, but I’m having some trouble making sure that Paypal Standard payment returns to the secure version of my thank you page.

When using Safari 8, when Paypal attempts to redirect me back I am getting ‘This is a non-secure form’ error. When I click Send, it redirects back to my site and seems to redirect eventually to an https version of the thank you page.

From what I can understand, Event Espresso lets Paypal know which URL to redirect back to, but I can’t find any setting where I can set the Auto Return in the admin. How can I make sure the URL which Paypal is redirecting back to is a secure one?
