Insecure Connection
« on: August 20, 2017, 08:54. »
When logging-in from my laptop I get an 'insecure connection' message.

See

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/insecure-password-warning-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

and

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Security/Insecure_passwords

Can you do something about it please?

I am afraid that I cannot help you with this one, the problem is peculiar to your Firefox browser. if you Google "insecure Connection In Firefox" you will find several solutions to this error message which seems to be happening to a lot of Firefox users. Good luck.

I use Firefox and Chrome, Firefox is my default but does have issues.....for some reason I can't book a Ryanair flight using Firefox, and I often get the message that Keith refers to above....with Chrome I have no such issues

Regards all

Hi,  just upgraded Firefox to version 55.0.2 and I'm not seeing any issues.

I use Firefox ESR 52.3.0 (64-bit).  Gasbags is the only site that gives me the 'insecure connection' message.

Other sites I have used that require a user to login use https instead of plain unencripted http.  I will lurk on this site in future and only log in when it is essential.
