login box pop-up says security could be compromised
« on: May 29, 2018, 07:00:02 am »
Using Firefox with cursor in the username box, a small box opens up saying 'this link is insecure.....' . Does anyone else see this?

that can happen with certain image hosts. Report a post in the thread so a mod can take a look. If it happens on all the pages, the issue might be on your end.

The message appears because this site uses http, which is now considered insecure.

Firefox and the others want you to upgrade this site to use https.

Good call, I didn't think he meant that.

@Robbbert: ahh, yes. And isn't it more secure?


@Malenko: I can't imagine what you thought I meant.

A different kind of pop up warning

Yes, obviously. I mean, what in my posting led you to that?

It isn't. I was curious of your thought process.

when people hotlink 3rd party images on less than great sites, you can get an insecure warning and even log in dialog boxes.
