    Security Warning

    Is anyone else getting a security warning popup every time they click on a link on CF? It just started for me today.

    Re: Security Warning

    Mine keeps asking if I want to install something today. Only on CF. No other websites are doing it.

    Ya, that's what it's doing on mine too. It's really annoying, won't allow me to view a page until the popup appears.

    Home browser - Firefox - not getting install request

    Work browser - Explorer 8 - getting Adobe Flash install request however when declining I get sent to a page saying that I was sent there because a program was trying to install and looked dangerous. I can not get on CF at all there.

    Sounds like the proverbial Chinese fire drill. Adobe does update Flash quite often.

    Every time I try to open CF on my Droid I get the following security warning:

    Security warning; There are problems with security/certificate for this site. This certificate is not from a trusted authority.

    I don't get a security warning opening CF on my PC.
