FireFox unsecured?

Does it ever seem that every thing you touch turns to poop and so does the piece it's attached to?

I'm trying to post up a problem I'm having with GF's rig but I use FireFox. Every time I try to log into EOC I get dire warnings that FF is not secure. It offers that I might try typing "http://" first but it hasn't worked yet.

What's up??

I'm using the latest 64b version of firefox and I have no problems at all, google on the other hand can at times be problematic, I'm using win10 which gave me a few problems in it's early release, those problem have gone away with later releases, firefox is set as default.

The only thing I can suggest is to check the settings, try different settings see if it makes a difference.

Well, I have 52.2.0 ESR. I guess that would explain it. This particular rig is the first I ever built and it's still running Vista.

Insecure password warning in Firefox


Firefox will display a lock icon with red strike-through 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.

Firefox and Google Chrome starting warning customers that sites not using SSL/TLS to secure their traffic were insecure a few versions ago. Its a warning basically telling you that this site doesn't use a secure connection its http:// not https:// Since I doubt anyone is going to re-engineer this site and spring for an SSL cert anytime soon I would advise not using a password you use on other sites here.
