Firefox Security Warnings

Friday, February 29th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Firefox Security Warnings

I know we here at WorldStart have brought you several Firefox tips in the past and while we’ve covered a wide range of topics, I ran into something the other day that we have never gone over. Now, I’m a huge Firefox fan and even though I use it religiously, I have never noticed this feature before. I figured some of you might be in the same boat, so I wanted to take care of this right away. So, if you’re up for another Firefox feature that you can put to good use, listen up. This one’s a must read!

As you may recall from a previous tip, I went over all of the basic security features the Firefox Web browser has to offer. But I must not have paid close enough attention, because I missed a very important one. If you go to Tools, Options and click on the Security icon, there’s a section at the very bottom of that box titled Warning Messages. With that, you can choose which warning messages you want to pop up while you’re surfing the Web. Wow, who knew?! To see your choices, just click on the Settings button.

You’ll see five options there, each with its own checkbox. They are: “I am about to view an encrypted page,” “I am about to view a page that uses low-grade encryption,” “I leave an encrypted page for one that isn’t encrypted,” “I submit information that’s not encrypted” and “I’m about to view an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information.” Simply checkmark the warnings you want to see and then click OK. The warnings you receive while using Firefox are completely up to you. Your safety is in your own hands and I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want it any other way!
