    Default search function not secure

    I am not savvy enough to know what this means or if it's a problem, but I tried to use the search function and got a message that said
    The information youíre about to submit is not secure
    Because the site is using a connection thatís not completely secure, your information will be visible to others.
    I guess I don't care if my search is visible to others, but I've never gotten this message before.

    I get the same and Search Now using Advanced Search just sits there doing nothing. I'm using Firefox 85.0.1 with addons disabled. Hmmm

    I see the warning too on Firefox 78.5.0esr. Firefox issues the warning because the board is serving the page over a secure connection, but the search query will be sent over an insecure connection.

    For a bulletin board, I wouldn't worry.

    Okedoke.

    EdG thank you. Advanced Search now works for me too IF I disable all of FF's "enhanced tracking protection" for this site.
