In firefix there's a warning about connection not being secure, "Parts of this page are not secure (such as images)"
Can you paste in the URL of the page you are seeing this warning on?
It's typically because one or more of the images, or embeds on the page isn't an https reference.

All pages do it. I think it is either the logo picture, or the associated link: http://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/

EDIT: it's the link, as loading the GIF image alone does not generate the warning.

Yes, as Mark said, it happens everywhere, even this thread :)

Hello. It's pages where users have inserted images hosted elsewhere. This page of this thread is currently fine.

I'm aware of the issue, and need to find a time to look at fixes, but for now it is as it is. Sorry.

Someone posted some possible solutions earlier in the week that I will look at.

I did my investigations on the FAQ page...
No user images or links there as far as I could see...

OK. Thanks Mark. I will continue looking. I'm using Chrome and I get the full secured site on that page, but will install Firefox and try it. We are out this weekend but will make it a priority.

@HexTank, @1024MAK, are you seeing the same issue on this page:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=4 -- the Contact page?

Also, which version of Firefox are you running, what operating system?
Are you running any plugins or extensions that may inject markup on the page, for example an "Instagram this!" button on images?

I've checked the pages listed on Vivaldi, and Firefox on my Mac (El Capitan), and no warnings produced.

Thanks for the testing Mike. SSL is new to me.

Me too. :-)
Just trying to replicate the problem, then we can figure out what's going on.
