Thanks for timely reply and status. I've got the knobs ratcheted up to 11 where possible regarding browsing security, but mindful not to go berzerker either. Sometimes pages take a tad longer to load, and then I use the time to watch the spinning addresses in the corner. Not this site, but some non-https: will not even load, producing instead a mean warning tab to 'GO BACK' - Dangerous unsecure destination! lol

Just trying to reduce variables - thanks.

Another problem that I've had (but,not on this site) is that a few of my browser extensions affected how some sites loaded/ran,and even prevented some from loading at all.

Are you still having any issues with the site or is it working normally?

Thanks,

After logged in I got reversed back out of Reply mid-typing a few times. Got logged out once even. That seemed limited to one thread - and only one time. Still ponders a touch longer than usual occasionally, appearing to either be sneaking or bulling its way through something. Lots of screen reimaging or refreshing whatever the term. Per the symptoms there's postings on several pot. Win culprits; Powershell this, 3rd party apps that, and always reloading drivers and graphics adapters, and rebooting in Safe Mode to clear cobwebs. Nothing major. Thanks for checking.

Firefox says site not secure

Updated Firefox and when I went to log in it warns me my password will not be secure.

It also says:

Firefox will display a grey lock icon with a 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.

What can I do if a login page is insecure?

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.

As I said, we'll be adding https soon, though I don't have an official ETA yet. The main draw to https is that it prevents an MIM attack (or Man in the Middle) when someone intercepts what you are typing as you type it. We've never protected against it before since everything being typed here is going to public threads, so it never made much sense to.

We're adding it mostly to maintain our status as a safe site now that lack of https is being flagged

What about login passwords? They're the primary reason browsers are starting to warn about insecure connections.

As I understand it, they should be fine. I can dig in deeper, but passwords are encrypted so they shouldn't be able to understand what's being intercepted. Anything in your User CP is fine as well (including PM's) as only you have access to those pages. Access is required for a MIM attack

How's it coming? Logging in of late creates a new tab with page to 'Insecure Password Warning in Firefox' blurb.

Unfortunately, we still have no ETA on this. Adding Https to the site has always been on the "to-do" list, but it's being pumped up in priority, mostly to keep the site's reputation as a safe place. We have a very large network and few other company-wide rollouts in progress right now. We will let you know when the process starts.

I was not able to recreate the issue you described when using Firefox - it doesn't open up a new tab for me. There is a blurb that appears just below the user login fields to say "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised. Learn More":



Can you take a screenshot of how you're seeing it? Also, what device are you using this on? I'm on a win 10 desktop.


Thanks,
Nate
