The subject message appears at the top of any new Daily Kos session that is opened. How can I get this to stop. I have attached a jpg showing the banner/message. It goes away when I click the 'X' on the right side of the banner. Thanks.

    It is because some links are https and some are http. Browsers have trouble with mixed message, so rate the site as a threat.

    Is there a way to white list Daily Kos in either Chrome or Firefox so that I don't need to see the warning?

    I wonder if the banner is from your anti-virus software, especially if you get the same banner in both Firefox and Chrome. I don't see a way to whitelist in Firefox. Check your antivirus program dashboard and see if there is a way to whitelist sites there.
