When I log in (to make a reply on Grow Your Own, to look at Chat, to create this message) a message pops up from Firefox Version 52 which notes that "This connection is not secure. Login entered here could be compromised."

As suggested I did try https:downsizer.net but apparently there is no secure login.

I will be sad if it continues to be risky to sign in to reply on Grow Your Own, to look at Chat etc.

Comments, suggestions, solutions please. If there is no solution all I can say is it was great while it lasted and I will truly miss you all.

I've asked jema. As far as I can see the only risk is that someone might intercept your downsizer password.

It is no more risky now than it has been for the last 13 years.

I'm told you can turn off the warning if you want:
Quote:

1> Type about:config into the navigation bar.
2> Search for the preference "security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enable d" and double-click on it to change the value to false..
3> Restart Firefox.
