Security warning when searching

33.1.1, XP, SP3

Since upgrading to 33.1.1 every time I do a Google search from my BT Home Page I get the following security warning:

"Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.

"Are you sure you want to continue sending this information?"

I am aware that Google search in Firefox's default page is encrypted and I also know that if I use Google search in the address bar of my BT Home Page there is no warning (presumably because I'm still effectively using Firefox).

As stated this has only started happening since the upgrade to 31.1.1 - is this a new addition?

It is much more convenient to use the large search box on my BT page as the cursor is placed there by default.

Obviously I don't want to people to track my searches although I have been using non-encrypted http for years. However, is there any way I can set my BT search panel to https or to tell Firefox that https should be used on that page? Probably not.

As a last resort, is there any way I can turn off this annoying warning?

Flash is notorious for not cleaning out the older version as part of an update. Grab the uninstaller from here: Uninstall Flash Player | Windows Uninstall Flash Player | Mac Then reinstall the latest version.

Thanks for replying.

Have uninstalled/reinstalled both Flash Player and Shockwave Director.

I'm a bit confused. The only thing showing in Firefox add ons now is Shockwave Flash 15.0.0.223. Is this some kind of hybrid of Shockwave Director and Flash Player?

My BT Home Page URL is:

https://home.bt.com/

I do not get any security warning when searching from www.google.com

For some reason, Flash is listed as Shockwave Flash, and Shockwave is listed as Shockwave for Director.

Use this link and you won't get the pop-up; http://home.bt.com/

Using just http instead of https does indeed stop the security warning. I realise that it is less secure but I can live with that if all it affects is my searching.

On the other point, it appears that my first effort to uninstall/reinstall Flash and Shockwave failed. Shockwave did not appear in add/remove programs and was not listed in add ons.

Used Flash uninstaller again and this time downloaded both installers from this link (top right-hand corner): http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html

Add ons now showing:

Shockwave Flash 15.0.0.223 Shockwave for Director 12.1.4.154

I will now mark this thread solved.

Thanks very much for your help.

Unless you actually use the Shockwave (director) player for some certain games or interactive learning things, you may not likely need it compared to the Flash Player anyways. So you might as well uninstall it versus having to keep it updated.

Have taken your advice and uninstalled Shockwave for Director. I'm not a gamer and doubt I will ever use it.

I assume I will be prompted to install it should I need it.

Thanks.
