    Has anyone noticed that when they try to log in on this site using Firefox, that a message is displayed saying that the website is not secure and that login details may be at risk.
    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.

    [​IMG]
    Note: When you start typing in your login information, the warning message can obscure the password entry box. You can press the Enter key after you type in your username (or click outside of the password area) to dismiss the warning.

    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 address bar. You can also try to contact the web administrator for the site and ask them to secure their connection.

    Not recommended: You can also continue to log in to the website even if the connection is insecure, but do so at your own risk. If you do go this route, try to use a unique password or a password that you don’t also use for other important sites.
    About insecure pages
    Pages that need to transmit private information, such as credit cards, personal information and passwords, need to have a secure connection to help prevent attackers from stealing your information. (Tip: A secure connection will have "HTTPS" in the address bar, along with a green lock icon.)

    Pages that don’t transmit any private information can have an unencrypted connection (HTTP). It is not advised to enter private information, such as passwords, on a web page that shows HTTP in the address bar. The information you enter can be stolen over this insecure connection.
    I clicked on the more information menu and got some information that you may want to take a look at. Follow the link below for further information.

    This only seems to happen using Firefox. I used Google Chrome and it never happened.
