I'm a long time user but am now being told when I try to log in using Firefox 52 that the connection is not secure and what I write can be read by third parties. Is this a site issue?

    Another observation - if you log in from the home page main log in- the URL does not present with an https prefix... but if you log in from within a thread, say, you click to comment but are not logged in and then log in - the https does show up. So the security is just fine there but not from the home page?

    Thanks for asking.
    Yes, you have identified the issue. Firefox is alerting you to the fact that Daily Kos provides what is called "mixed content" -- some pages being on https, and others on http.
    We're working assiduously on making the transition to https everywhere, but it's a big and slow job. We'll get there soon. In the meantime, you will continue to see those warnings from Firefox.
    It's a good idea to observe standard security practices no matter what regarding password protection and browser updates for every site you visit.
