Forum login is not secure (not news, but the browser complains now)

With a recent upgrade to Firefox, it now displays warnings when typing in username and password that this site is not secure.

I've known this for a while, and I have again manually tried and it does not work.

Is https support in the works for a future forum upgrade?

As far as I know all they were doing was something to change some vendor protocols and rules. Not sure that would cause what your taking about.
Maybe take a screen shot of the screen warning you get and post it here and they will no doubt respond at some point.
Just wondering if Firefox is reponidng to latest cyber thing that's happening. ??? Shrug......dunno.
I have not had an issue or any warnings so far.

Some things are better left unsaid, which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Https will be added to the site in the near future, though I don't have an official ETA yet. Mostly HTTPs protects against MIM attacks (man in the middle) where someone intercepts what you are typing as you type it, not something that is super useful on a site where most everything is being posted to a public forum readable by anyone. Still, it's been on the "to-do" list for awhile now. Firefox is making us push it up higher on that list though.
