So this has been an issue for a while:

 

I'll go to atariage.com and click on the forums link. Then I'll go to log in and firefox will pop up a message over the login form saying the connection isn't secure instead of autoentering my login info.

So I check the url and it's not using https.

So I add https:// to the beginning of the url and hit enter/return. Now I have a secure connection.

So I enter my login. Main forum page reloads, still says it's using https... But if I click through to anything else on the forum it is again not using https.

I typically use Firefox and am running the latest stable release. No beta or anything like that. The website also behaves the same way on chrome, though chrome isn't as fussy about auto entering login details on an insecure form.

Yes, I stumbled over the same problem. Even with HTTPS Everywhere it permanently reverts back to HTTP.

...and I get logged out permanently. So I had to disable HTTPS Everywhere for AtariAge.

When Albert is done upgrading the forums, hopefully (*) everything will go through https though it means a lot of server caching may occur.

Anyway, I read the other day that non-https sites will get badly penalized within short, so supposedly almost every site is hurrying to migrate to https, no matter the costs and amount of work required.

 

(*) Once and for all, browsing with vintage computers will become impossible unless you set up your own proxy.
