Later pages of "Off-topic" report insecure connection

25 Mar 2019, 11:52

Hi, although "Off-topic" pages from page 1 to this post of 08 Feb 2017 (p. 157) report as secure, those from this post also of 08 Feb 2017 (p. 158) and later report as being insecure. Both Pale Moon and Firefox. Chrome exhibits analogous though not identical behavior. The insecure posts begin with this post of 23 Jan 2017 (p. 156).
This seems, well, "not right." :D Anyone else get these results or similar?
Regards,

Isn't that due to Joe Glines' non-https image signature? I'm not a fan of signatures; neither text of image. But on a forum you can expect these things. One forum I know of caches all user-linked images to prevent this mixed content and things such as tracking and dead links but that turns the forum into an images hoster.

@Nextron, I'm willing to be you're right. This page doesn't report as insecure, and doesn't have Joe's signature.

@joedf, here's a GIF. (For Firefox, same warning, but I can't take screenshot of the whole URL).

Thanks. Hmmm.... Could you bring up the browser log to see what the insecure content is? :think:

@joedf, sure. As @Nextron reported, it's related to Joe's sig. Here's a GIF.

Oh okay... well I can't do much about that... Unless the signature gets changed or hosted on https... :/

Images should be banned in signatures in my opinion. Especially self hosted images such as these are a privacy concern - in this case said user can see the IPs of people visiting the forum (in threads he posted in of course) and perhaps even see other info people are not expecting to share.
