    This pop up just started showing up when I login here at TQ. Using the firefox browser. Has anyone else seen this on this site? A 1st for me. If I click on it, it says hackers could use my info if I don't TQ login.JPG see the "s" after http. I know the site is secure. Any reason for concern when logging in? Thanks DD

    Not TQ it's FireFox just telling you the connection is not secure. That stated a while back after they did a UpDate......

    I use firefox and it started with me a few days ago AFTER updating. Annoying. It doesn't do it when using Windows 10 Catana but that is even more annoying for me so I just have put up with it.

    Looks like it only affects Firefox users.

    Its probably not a need for concern Dragon but heres some of the message apparently addressing site compatibility.

    Yea, they came out with a new WiFi / Internet Protections system I think you have to pay for. Their pushing it in your face with this stupid thing. If you just stay logged in or set TQ to remember you it goes away.

    No need to worry about our security here. Just don't use a password here that you use for banking or bill pay.

    Of course use common sense. Every server has its glitch. Irritable updates. No worries at TQ! Cheers
