    When i visit not logged in, it shows secure while viewing new posts page and viewing a thread. However when i log in and view a thread it shows "insecure connection". When i view a forum page but not in a thread it still shows secure.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Why is it insecure when in a thread?

    I am using Adblocker Plus and my updates and antivirus protections are in place. It is exclusive to this site.

    Can a moderator or administrator advise?

    Sounds like someone is watching you. Be careful, my Friend.

    This can cause issues. Some scripts may not load so I'd advise to disable it.

    I was using Plus but I switched to AdBlock. Seems to work better. You have to use some type of add blocking on this forum or it would run a person crazy with all the junk pop-ups. :(

    I quit using adblock and the popups are not an issue anymore. They were in the past. iphone

    but remember those ads pay the bills and make possible to cover all the costs of this community. ;)

    He aint talking about those ads. The legit ones are fine. Every thirty seconds a “you won a walmart giftcard” would pop up and lock up our phones making this site completely unusable without using adblock. This site is the only one i use that had this issue and it persisted for years.
    I appreciate that it appears to be fixed for now but that issue hurt the people that pay for legit ads and frustrated the people trying to use this site.
    Adblock kept me visiting this site until someone finally fixed it.

    Add block was hard on my battery so I’m happy not to use it as long as I don’t get that stupid Walmart pop up
