    Hi everyone,

    I just noticed that everytime I log into my AC5300 router with Firefox, I get an alert from Firefox telling me that the site is not secure and my log in can be compromised. So I type my user name and password and go to manage my router and then evry time I click on any link in my router, Bitdefender shows an alert that a Trojan virus was deleted. This behavior never happened before and it doesn't happen with any of the other browsers. I have a Mac Pro running Mac OS X 10.12.3, Firefox 52.0.2. I ran a scan and even reset the router and still the annoying alerts. Does anyone exhibit this kind of behavior?

    New Firefox feature to bug you to death. Change the router to https, turn the feature off in Firefox, or live with it.

    Assuming your refering to above, cause its only thing that turns that warning off, I do have to thank you though, Until I read the part of "turn it off" I didnt think to looking about:config to see if there was way to turn that message off

    Seeing as I made 2 trips to look at other computers using FF/CF doing same things just to realize it some thing FF does now I was annoyed

    Not sure why FF has a "learn more" link for it that goes to no existant page though

    BTW I dont the virus notifaction either. FF/CF 52 with Avast

    I solved the problem by excluding Firefox profile folder from Bitdefender scans. Thanks guys.
