Odd pop-up window...
« on: November 26, 2012, 06:47:04 PM »
Okay, I usually wouldn't do this, but this is getting annoying, not to mention that, in my paranoid mind, could mean that someone has hacked into my account... I am a complete idiot when it comes to tech stuff, so bear with me, please...

Whenever I open my PMs page, a window pops up(With a loud noise, which be the annoying part), saying the following:

"You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party."

I just want to know what it means, and how to get rids of it... I run E on Mozilla, if anybody is going to ask....

Go to http://elliquiy.com and you won't see it.

It's because someone in your PM inbox has a signature or embedded an image with a hardlinked http site while you're browsing https://elliquiy.com

If I understand 'hardlinking' correctly, wouldn't that mean it was a link to a specific file, and therefore (since offsite graphics files won't show up in sigs) a link to something in the Wiki?  If that is the case, would adjusting the link in the sig to https:// fix the problem?

(Of course, at the moment, this would involve determining which sig was causing the problem.)

I use https and Mozilla, and I don't have this problem.  Is there something you can do to disable whatever is happening with Bane?

I had that message come up earlier after I was trying to log off Facebook. I closed all my browsers and ran  SUPERanti-spyware... havent had a problem since....

It's not a virus or spyware of any kind. It's merely an informational message to let you know that part of what is being displayed on the page is not encrypted, and thus could be intercepted. When browsing Elliquiy on https, you'll see this message in threads and other conversations with most hotlinked images, for example.
