"Security" browser warnings on Oldgas.com - Fri Feb 16 2018 07:30 PM

Firefox and now Chrome are warning users about https / tls encryption security, especially at login. Users don't send credit card payment information or other critical financial or personal info here on Oldgas.com.

The only downsides of viewing Oldgas.com using https are that it may be slightly slower and that some 3rd party hosted pictures will not display if they are delivered from a non-https server. All Oldgas.com hosted images will display as normal. Our eBay Auction Watch page will currently not display live auctions or the searchbox when viewed using https. I'm working on a solution.
