When starting Firefox, I get a message that website is not encrypted????

Posted

Message warns that website is not encrypted and not safe. Why would this happen and what is the danger?

Chosen solution

I finally figured it out. The not encrypted message pertained to the site I was going to and was not referring to Firefox. I was a little slow figuring this out but problem is solved now.

Can you reply with the URL(s) of your home page(s)? You can copy from here:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Options > General

Is that message in a pop-up?

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.
