Unhappy Login not secure (over plain HTTP)

Hello admin,

I'm using Firefox 52 and now when I login, my browser warns me of non-secure HTTP Login [1].
Login should always be done over secure channels (HTTPS, TLS).

Also there is Letís Encrypt [2] that issues free certs (not sure if it's suitable for a big site)

[2]: https://letsencrypt.org/

I am also seeing this. We will have the backroom guys have a look at it. Nothing here has changed, as far as I know. Firefox seems to be the change.

Isn't internet security an oxymoron? Yes it is, I just checked

Yes they are trying to scare people FOR NO REASON!!!!!



ALL SITES ARE NOT SECURE.... Even with HTTPS,the elite can still see everything!!

I hate firefox,always have...... DONT LISTEN TO THIER SCARE TACTICS PLEASE GUYS!!


One VBB site I am on does have an HTTPS layer so if ppl want to use HTTPS they can (And the site stays in an HTTPS session) but they dont force it because it causes all kinds of connection problems for older browsers,etc........... (Unless RC4 is enabled)

Do not use the same username or password for insecure sites as you use for shopping/banking etc. It is a valid warning that serves as a reminder not to do this.

Any site that does not use https seems to generate this warning IMLE with the latest version of FF. They should allow you to turn off this nag through the options dialog but they don't. They could have been cleverer and just flashed green for https and yellow for http. The fact that it seems to be less and less compatible with a lot of the web based tools I use at work in particular is forcing me back to microsoft.
