Am I the only one who gets warned about the connection being insecure when I log in?

Nope. Although It only started happening yesterday, when I upgraded to the latest version of Firefox.

The same happened to me. Updated Firefox, and the warnings began to appear. It is apparently nothing else than a new security feature of Firefox.

I get the warning using Chrome on a desktop.

In addition to Firefox on Windows, I also use a Chromebook. I don't get any warnings on it.

They must have recently removed a root certificate used by Firefox and Chrome.

The ZBB doesn't even use HTTPS, so it's as insecure as it gets.

i spose its cause the browser detects a password login screen that's not behind htpps, which it reasonably suspects *could* be physhing. i've grown so accustomed to the little i in a circle up there that its become part of the landscape.

You are not the only one, and it's because the connection is, duh, insecure.

Which means, among others, that when logging in while using wi-fi, anyone (within the same network) can see your password.
