Post A Warning ?? 
Not sure where I should post this but here is a start.

Logging in today as per normal a warning popped up to the effect that there is an unsecure connection.
Checking on the relevant Firefox page I saw the following text.
From what I can see Fox2 does not use the more secure https page systems and this is why the warning appeared.
Presumably someone is going to burn the midnight oil Neutral

Seen on Firefox's page.
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 youíre 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.
 
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 favourite site is insecure, you can try and see if a secure version of the page exists by typing https:// before the url in the location 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 donít also use for other important sites.

There was more text but the above is the main part.
Perhaps other users do not use a more updated search engine and it has not shown up - yet.
Admins.
Move this if needed.
Cheers
Keith
