Yes, I am looking into it, but it isn't so easy to figure it out ...

MIF is looking into it.

Unfortunately, I have encountered this with FF and IE.

Can't say, only my speculation.
Even one is bad.

Could there be one or more of them?

I too believe the server is well protected. I was just trying to say that if there's any rogue router in between, it can get the login info.

I do believe that FF knows that this line is unsecured but the new server is very, very protective. It is the best one we have had.

Yes, it is helpful to know the packets sent to and from your computer. Yes, it's freely downloadable.

I wanted to tell when I started using the forum, but did not think there would not be much problem since the messages are public anyway.
But recently read about the defacements/info stealing happening to ubuntu forum, app*e stores,  and made the request to secure it.

I did not know that program?! Wireshark, is it downloadable?

gAr

Checked using wireshark. The "live HTTP headers" FF addon can also be used to test that.

A part of the POST information looks like this:
form_sent=1&redirect_url=index.php&req_username=<myid>&req_password=<mypasswd>&login=Login

Hmmm, how do you know this?

For me even when on FF it's not encrypted, id and passwd are sent over the network unencrypted.
