That used to ocassionally happen with the old MRF as well. It is to do with the type of server you link to when logging in. HTTP is not secure HTTPS is. This and the last forum use/d the former. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

That's because its an HTTP:// rather than HTTPS:// web site.

When I get half n hour I'll see if a HTTPS:// site can be easily added
BTW The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

hi brian.

i recommend investigating certificates from 'LetsEncrypt' as they are free.

The site works under HTTPS but the error is caused due to there being a certificate issue.
