Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

The "Site Stuff" page holds 30 topics.
4 of these gives a small notificaion icon in latest Firefox on Windows.
It informs that some content on the page is not safe.
The topics are:
Regularly Get A Site Error
Can't re-download after purchase
Dark Forum Theme?
after the move

I can't find anything that differ between safe and unsafe topic.
So i forward it to whoever wants to play Sherlock Holmes. Good luck. :D

HTTPS stuff again?

Nothing happens here in Chrome, by the way.

every forum too, if you click it it says parts of this page are not secure (such as images)...perhaps an abundance of caution?
Why are so many guitar player jokes one liners? So the rest of the band can understand them.

In "Regularly get a site error" I noticed at least one sig image is retrieved via http rather than https, the encrypted protocol.

{Some? All?} browsers give a warning if the page itself is secure but one or more of the component files that it pulls in isn't. I don't get the warning, which probably means I told Firefox not to bother me with such details for KVR.

the warning I got was next to the address bar on my browser where the lock image is, it's a tiny yellow triangle on the lock...I didn't get a warning nor would I have ever seen it tbh if it wasn't for this thread

Yes, that's what i got too.
I do have lowered the security settings for KVR so i don't feel threatened by the warning.
Got curious, that's all.
And it mentions that it could be a bad picture but all visible pictures on the page is https.
