Anyone have any idea why I keep getting the attached message when logging in through FireFox?? It keeps reappearing every time changing screens. Very annoying! No problem with Internet Explorer.

I use Firefox and I do not get that. However, when I use Chrome I sometimes get a similar message that won't quit. I ran my anti virus program and it went away.

This is usually caused by having your login info in the bookmarked URL. Change your bookmark to just the basic URL and see if that fixes the problem.

Example:

Don't have it set like this -- http://myusername:mypassword --at-sign-- stampcommunity.org

Have it set to this -- http://www.stampcommunity.org

Yeah. Don't do that.

Also %2E is the . (period) character. Not sure how/why it was 'encoded' that way.

You've probably seen %20 in URLs when there is a SPACE in the address (also a bad idea).

Guys - so sorry about the duplicity on this request. I did fix it back in November but looks like it came back somehow and I totally forgot about the previous request. In my defense - I am of that age group.

The big browsers, including at least Firefox and Chrome (soon) (with Edge to follow suit) will be issuing this warning to any user logging into any website that does not use SSL (https) for encrypting traffic from end-to-end.

The reason for this is that on a non-ssl site, your password is sent as clear, unencrypted text over the wire.

StampCommunity would need to purchase an SSL cert and implement in order to stop these warnings from going away.

SSL Sites can easily be identified by the green icon that will show up in your address bar. (for example, just go to google.com and you will see that all google traffic is secure)

At some point in the future (a few years down the road), it is likely that browsers will actually prevent logins to non-secure sites.

My computer does not show any green on the SSL sites ( must be out of green ink! ). I am using FireFox and was told that to recognize a SSL site to look for the "s" after http in the address.

Eric, you're so way off base. SSL has nothing to do with it (I've used FF forever and never seen it.), and absolutely isn't necessary for this site. In fact, if anyone forces me to get SSL here I'll just shut the place down or sell it. That's absurd. Between the coin forum and here there are over 2,000 posts a day, that's a ton of people logging in on 2 non-SSL sites every single day with only with 2 complaints. So not even close to the issue.

I was incorrect in the fact of the OP's error message, and I see along with the above folks who replied, that it has to do with sending the loginname/password direct in the URL- Wheelman - check your URL it might be malformed in the address bar

However, on SSL, the fact still remains: Mozilla and Chrome are both planning to deprecate HTTP.

It is a gradual phaseout, but it is happening as we speak. Chrome already is telling me that "This site is not secure". The warning will become more prominent in future version.

Luckily, SSL Certs have come down quite a bit in price...they will probably come down more soon. You can get them for around $50/year.

Quote:

Chrome users who navigate to some HTTP sites will be notified, starting in January, they're on a site that isn't secure.

Google said today the browser will begin explicitly labeling HTTP connections that feature either a password or credit card form as non-secure. The company said the plan is its first step toward marking all HTTP sites as non-secure, though it didn't provide a timetable for the undertaking.
