This is perfectly normal. It means that the site in question is using http and not https. I just checked ebay.co.uk and I get the same.

 

Click on the "i" icon in Firefox when on Bleeping Computer, and it should say "Secure Connection."

Thanks.

 

Yes, it was a longstanding issue in my main PC with vista but it also shows up in my laptop with win 7. both have Kaspesky 2016.

 

i think its the certificate issue with KIS 2016.

Ah, it looks like there is a problem with the certificate for www.alakazam.co.uk. When I try to connect using Firefox, I get the same message as you:
 

The owner of www.alakazam.co.uk has configured their web site improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this web site.


This is a completely separate issue to the "Connection is not Secure" message that you see when clicking on the "i" in Firefox on sites such as ebay.co.uk however, which as I mentioned, is solely because the site uses http.

Yes, completely normal. It's quite common for sites nowadays to not show the http:// part of the address in your browser, and to just show www.ebay.co.uk. :)

As an aside, for those who would prefer secure connections to be forced pretty much wherever they can be, the HTTPS Everywhere add-on/extension (depending on the web browser we're talking about) is your friend.

The Https means a secure website. An extra layer of security is added at those sites.
