how do i tell firefox to pound sand and let me login to my website as admin even though it isn't encrypted - I need to login. Their info has not been helpful. Why do I have to ask the community about something they should be answering.

It shouldn't be a problem to login to a website opened via an open http:// connection. You can close possible insecure warnings via the ESC key.

Firefox 51+ will mark HTTP connections with a padlock with a strike through and shows "Connection is Not Secure" if you click the Control Center 'i' button at the left end of the location/address bar.

Note that this message is meant as a warning that you could be vulnerable and that it shouldn't prevent (block) you from accessing the website.

You can press the ESC key to close a doorhanger with a warning message in the name and password field.

You can disable the warning that opens when you type in a name/password field by setting this pref to false.

  • security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false

You can remove the warning in the location bar by setting this pref to false on the about:config page.

  • security.insecure_password.ui.enabled = false
