    my browser message said to check the url with a https:// right before it, to see if there is a securee connection...

    so YES. the S has to be there to be secure..... so your connection is not secure either and it might be a USMB problem?????????

    USMB to my knowledge, was NEVER an "encrypted, secure" site. There is nothing to protect, but your log-in password. And that is YOUR responsibility.

    Cynically, I can suggest that your browser -- which in many cases -- wants to know every detail of every transaction you make on the web -- may just be PISSED OFF that you won't share your USMB log-in information with them.

    Realize that if you allow your browser TO STORE these passwords and log-ins, they could be subject to legal subpoena, either criminal or federal domestic spying and used to gain access to your PERSONAL communications on USMB. Including your PMs and your galleries and your subscribed "Social Groups".. .

    Yep, the drop down thingy on the left in Firefox says it's not secure. It has a symbol for either always showing. I'm not sure why it would need to be but I don't put anything in my profile.
