    Exclamation Firefox stating Broken Unsecure Site

    Firefox stating that Broken is an Unsecure Site

    we tried logging in with an https, but broken will not open

    This is the warning we get, it displays a small little icon next to the site name
    warning of this

    https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Prote...fox/ta-p/27861

    This is a new feature that is available starting in Firefox version 51.

    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.

    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.

    Any thoughts here please

    This is happening because we do not have an SSL certificate. To be honest, I have yet to see any forum that does have SSL.

    It's nothing to worry about, it's just a pain in the butt because they are trying to get SSL everywhere these days.

    And if anyone wants to totally get rid of the annoying sh*t, here's a link to do just that.

    Code:
    https://www.thesslstore.com/blog/disable-firefox-insecure-password-warnings/
    Here’s how to disable Firefox insecure password warnings:

    Open a new tab, paste about:config into the address bar and hit enter.
    If you see the “This Might Void Your Warranty” page, click the blue “I accept the risk!” button. Understand we are manually modifying Firefox’s default settings.
    In the Search box at the top, paste insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled

    Double click the setting to change it to “false”, to disable Firefox’s insecure password warning.
    Done! Now when you visit pages with HTTP login forms, the warning will no longer appear.
    I don't know if you need to, but after that I closed and reopened the browser.

    If you ever want/need to turn it back on, paste the same thing but change it back to true.
    I know it's supposed to be a good thing but honestly it was annoying the shit out of me and I managed to get by this long without it.
    If I need to turn it back on, I know how.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    It's so easy to blow up your problems...
    It's so easy to play up your breakdown...
    It's so easy to fly through a window...
    It's so easy to fool with the sound...

    If you want Firefox to remember your password, you need to do the following in addition to the fix that Frosty posted.

    Copy/Paste into search:

    Code:
    signon.autofillForms.http
    Right click on the preference string and toggle to true.

    I just put up with it.




    Crying parents tell their children
    If you survive don't do as we did
    A son exclaims there'll be nothing to do to
    Her daughter says she'll be dead with you...
