When logging into Fire Fox, I get the following warning:

This Connection is not Secure.
Logins entered here could be
compromised. Learn More


Unable to determine why. Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

What page are you logging in on? The warnings normally appear only if:

* The page itself has an HTTP address instead of HTTPS
* The form submits to a page with an HTTP address instead of HTTPS

Thanks Brummelchen and jscher2000. However I wonder if there is any way to overcome this problem since I didn't have the issue previously.

This warning was added around Firefox 52, so maybe you disabled it before but lost that customization recently?

Here is the preference to remove the drop-down warning on the login form fields:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste field and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

Are you on the ESR update channel (see Help -> About Firefox and about:support) ?
