Last week, 2 forums i go to, Firefox And IE both latest versions, these 2 websites on  the login screen, display "this site is not secure".

 

And in the address bar there is no HTTPS showing,

 

I reported it to Mozilla and Google, Mozilla said the administrator of the site should make it secure.

 

There is one other that shows secure, but images on the site could be not secure.,icon partly yellow and green

 

Apparently 52.0.1 has a few issues,, one is 32 bit the other 64, bboth have the issues, windows 7 and 8.1 ,2 different laptops

 

Any thoughts

The reason is simple:
  1. their license is expired
  2. they using false licenses (including expired license is a fake license)
  3. their license is not installed properly
  4. Firefox browser certificates database is outdated (it often happens to them)

Disregard this advice because as you said in the OP its on HTTP, its just a new feature standard that all browsers are using to notify you that the login is being performed over a HTTP connection and thats all it means.

Yes some sites will utilize HTTPS for the login string but the images will be over HTTP so mozilla etc will say that its not fully secure.
