Just a note to add that I too use Firefox and am also having trouble. My tech support person just spent over an hour identifying the problem, re-editing roughly 50 DK bookmarks & links I use, and looking to see if anything adverse has happened in/to my computer as a result.

Particular concern: nearly every link in "WhereTheKogsAre:Links to the 200+ DK Local & Political Grps by State & Beyond,2011-Mar2017" http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/02/18/1241736/-Where-The-Kogs-Are-A-Preliminary-Local-Groups-Index-by-State-Region-as-of-February-17-2014 is an insecure one, and since 90% of the groups have one link to DIARY LIST(posting history) list and another link to MEMBERS, that's roughly 180 links -- there's no way I can re-edit the entire directory.

Please let me know whether this particular problem will be self-correcting as a result of dk tech staff work in progess on secure connectivity?

Thanks.

    Yes, eventually all archived links will be upgraded. But it'll be a while; no date certain has been offered for this, even though the work is happening now. Sorry that it's such a big job, and a big concern, for everyone.
