Firefox warning - Posted: May 8, 2019 - 4:02 PM Quote and reply
I've just used Firefox to log into the website (I normally use Edge) and just as I start to enter the password a message box pops up:

This connection is not secure Login entered here could be compromised. Learn more...


Clicking takes you to another page warning that this applies from Firefox 52 and your password could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers. This is only important if the password is used on other sites you use.


I did however get through to the website as normal, but shall not use this browser for the RPS in future.

As posted earlier in the General Discussion section, those running Firefox seemed to have adopted a "mother hen" attitude towards users, and give all sorts of warnings - and even worse, disabling or deleting some features - without prior warning, or user approval - that they consider to be "undesirable" in browsers.
