Security Warning?

Recommended Posts

Digitrade

Since today I have been receiving the following message in a pop-up every time I try to open the Bidorbuy website:

 

Security Warning!

 

Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?

 

This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.

 

Any advise? This only happens on the Bidorbuy website.

Can you post the URL you want to access?

I just got the same message again. As soon as I want to open the Bidorbuy website, the pop-up appears.

It gives me an option of "Yes" or "No". If I click "Yes", then the Home Page opens, but all the thumbnails do not show.

If I click "No", then the Home Page opens very slow.

This is very strange indeed. I have a set link in my favorites that I have been using forever to access the Bidorbuy site.

If I open this link, then the URL is as follows: https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/. If I open this link, then the security warning pops up.

 

If I just type "Bidorbuy" into my browser toolbar as to search for something on the internet, then the following URL comes up: bidorbuy - Bid, Buy or Sell cameras, computers, diamonds, coins, cars & more on auction at cheap prices.

If I click on this link, then the security warning is nowhere to be found.

 

Notice that the second link does not contain a "s" at the end of "http"?

What browser/version is this?

Chances are no-one is going to see this at this time on a Sunday morning, but the filters in my open auctions with winning bids is hanging now. If by chance there is someone from Admin still around at this ungodly hour, if I try to arrange ie."Viewed", "Users Watching", etc. the page just hangs and eventually throws out a database error message or takes me to the bidorbuy's back-end is temporarily down...

 

I know chances are the gremlins will be asleep by the time dawn comes and all will probably just be okay again, but maybe there is something?:wondering:

PS Oops...:shock: Now I have to buy it? LOL :bigsmile:...

@Mac - If I type the word "Bidorbuy" into my browser search toolbar, then the first option that opens is the "http" link. No problems.

 

If I type "www.bidorbuy.co.za." into the browser search toolbar, then the "https" link is the first option available. Security warnings!

 

Surely something is not right?

Clear your browser cache/history/cookies etc - this should sort it hopefully out. It looks like a browser issue with regards to this message.

I use MSN as my Homepage. This seems to happen in this browser, as I did the same searches in Google, and all is fine.

I am just worried that other users that search for your site through MSN might get a skrik when they see these security warnings.

I had the same issue a while ago and I was given the cure for it but the thread seems to have been removed.

It was under "secure and insecure" either in the Bidorbuy thread (feedback ) or communnity chat .

It has something to do with the security settings.

@geewhizz - the issue you are referring to was a bug on our part - we accidentally mixed secure and insecure content, but this was fixed long time ago.

 

@Digitrade - doing a Bing search does show the right URLs. Perhaps IE got itself into a knot here - I suggest you bookmark bidorbuy - Homepage or bidorbuy - Login.

Do a Bing Search, but type the complete www dot bidorbuy dot co za address as a search, and the "https" link to bidorbuy will be your first option.
