Default Firefox Security

Ever since Mozilla Firefox updated about a week ago , I haven't been able to log into one of my favorite sites. It's not a bank or anything like that. When I click into the user name there's a drop down that tells me the site is insecure. It has http instead of https. The result is that I can't log in. I've looked to see if there's a way to buy pass it, but with no luck. I can't even find a download to a previous version. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try old version dot com, I've gotten older versions of software there..

Those are very old. I was hoping for the prior version. Things were working ok then.

You should be able to login regardless of that notification, I know for a fact Chrome has a similar feature but you can still login. I just tested myself on a site I know that isn't running over HTTPS and I could still login ok. Have you got any extensions or addons installed that could be causing this?

I've been having the same issue with some of my work's sites, namely email and ticketing system sites. My issue is that the security credentials have lapsed and apparently they are half-assing it like most everything else. I just have to tell FF to give them an exception and carry on... while shaking my head.

You can install FireFox 56ESR from here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo...nizations/all/

Make sure you change your auto update settings in FireFox so it won't automatically update again.
