Like most web browsers, Firefox will display security warnings such as:
- Entering Secure Sites
- Low-grade Encryption
- Leaving A Secure Sites
- Information about to be submitted is not encrypted
- Some of the items are not page are not encrypted
To disable these warnings in Firefox 1.5.0.X builds (Firefox 2.0 users see below) you will need to it via about:config…
- Open a new tab (if you have the about:config extension installed, click the icon and skip to step 3)
- In the address bar type about:config
- Enter security.warn in the Filter bar to limit display to just options containing ‘security.warn’.
- Double-click on the options names which DO NOT end with ‘.show_once’ to toggle them from TRUE to FALSE
- Close the tab when you are done and changes usually take effect immediately.
Thankfully, for Firefox 2.0 it much easier to disable these warnings…
- From the Tools Menu, Select Options…,
- Click the Security Tab
- At the very bottom in the ‘Warning Messages’ section, click ‘Settings…”
- Pick and chose which (if not all) messages to disable.
- Click OK
