On Forumosa, I have to click through a security warning each time I click on any forum or thread or try to post. :aiyo:

The following pops up:

Security Warning!

I don't get it. I'm using Firefox. Maybe try a different browser?

Only on Forumosa, but it happens at home as well as at work.

Mine only happens at work, Windows XP+IE8. At home, Windows 7+Chrome, no problem.

I have the same problem. I don't want to use any other browser. Over the years, I've never had these errors. These security warnings started a few months ago for me.

I believe that warning has to do with having secure content and unsecure content on the same page. Nothing you can really do about it since Forumosa posters put all kinds of images and links and stuff which are not https.

Isn't there a way to just add Forumosa to your list of acceptable websites so you don't get the warning?

I vaguely recall getting those warnings but I thought there is a way to ask not to be warned anymore and then the warning goes away.

It seems rather silly to me. You don't get a warning for http pages that are totally unsecure. You only get a warning for https pages that are not 100% secure. I guess it makes sense, but for most users, we don't really care unless we're using our credit card or something.

This isn't happening to me at this moment, but this is the first time I've noticed it not happening in a while.

Edit: It just happened again with the submission of this post.

Just putting something into the Trash or the Recycle Bin doesn't actually delete it. You then have to *empty* the Trash or Recycle Bin. (Once a year, I hear about somebody whose hard drive is full, despite having practically no files. It's because over the years, they've put 79 gigabytes' worth of stuff in the Recycle Bin and never emptied it.)
