    Dear those that be,

    Posting on these forums using Firefox I am greeted with this message:
    Insecure password warning in Firefox
    Firefox will display a lock icon with red strike-through [​IMG] in the address bar when a login page you’re viewing does not have a secure connection. This is to inform you that if you enter your password, it could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers.

    Starting in Firefox version 52, you will also see a warning message when you click inside the login box to enter a username or password.


    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/insecure-password-warning-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct


    Can anyone confirm they too are receving the message?
    Should I be concerned?

    Tia.

    It's generally good practice for all your browsing to use https anywhere or a VPN for added security. Unfortunately, only the latter will work for secure browsing on this website, at least until the certificate is implemented.

    "https anywhere" won't work with NBR since they don't support https! But yes, that is a good extension to use.
