Hello, I'm new here and I want to apologize for any mistake in my English. It's not my native language. Please guys, be patient with my English and hope you try to understand what I'm talking about.

Well, I have the latest Firefox version and want to know why Firefox always lost the https connection with secure websites? In the latest version (36.0.1) it seems became worse than previous versions. What I'm saying is that websites that use https, in Firefox for some reason it can't stay with the secure navigation always on, because the lock icon became a ! (exclamation) icon and always says the webpage is not encrypted at all.

Other browsers don't do this and always stay with https on. So what's the problem with Firefox? I like this browser but this issue is pissing me of.

No mistakes, and a good question that I also would like to know, mainly because I hadn't ever checked.
You are aware that many sites only use HTTPS for the secure logon and revert to none secure for the rest of the site.
I will have to check this next time I go to my bank site.

I have just realised why HTTPS is not used more.
Secure pages cannot be compressed for transmission therefore the internet would rapidly collapse under the load.

Hi Dave, thanks very much for the answer, you was the only one and I was losting hope that someone would answer this topic, LOL.

But it's a little strange because like I said other browsers keeps https connections. So if Firefox fails for this reason you said, other browsers are supposed to fail too, right?

In Firefox, it was in point that even GMAIL cannot keeps the https on and the exclamation icon appears in adress bar.

Well, anyway... I'm using other browser now. Maybe try Firefox again when the official x64 version is release, but for now, I'm done with Firefox.

Click the exclamation mark for an an explanation. On fully secure sights, https isn't lost (at least for me).

As I said, FF works for me. Try checking your Security settings in FF.
