"This connection is not secure . Logins entered here could be compromised. "
I have not received this warning pop-up before. Should I be concerned ?
When I click on "Learn More" , it takes me to Mozilla's page which explains what this warning means:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/in ... =inproduct
Apparently the pop-up warning about the insecure login is a new feature in version 52 of the Firefox browser ,
which I just updated to, so that is why I am now seeing the warning.
According to Mozilla , the fix is to type in https:// in front of the url forum.tvpaint.com to
check for whether the page has a secure log-in (it does) and then bookmark that as one's login page.
So now I have bookmarked https://forum.tvpaint.com as my log-in page for the TVPaint Forum."If a login page for your favorite site is insecure, you can try and see if a secure version of the page exists by typing https:// before the url in the location bar. You can also try to contact the web administrator for the site and ask them to secure their connection."
But their other suggestion is : "You can also try to contact the web administrator for the site and ask them to secure their connection.", so I am posting this here to inquire whether there is some security issue which should be addressed on this forum ? Is there a security setting that could be tweaked on the forum or is this just something the Firefox browser is objecting to because the default forum url (forum.tvpaint.com) is not preceded by the secure https:// protocol ?
Here is a screen shot of the warning pop-up I was seeing when attempting to
login to the default web address forum.tvpaint.com
Here is what shows in the address bar for forum.tvpaint.com -
But if I add https:// in front of forum.tvpaint.com here is what shows in the address bar:
