I changed my settings to accept payments via my profile page. But then every time I wanted to read a Kudoz question or do anything else at ProZ I got a security warning asking me if I was sure I wanted to open the page. When I unselected this option things went back to normal. Can someone tell a relative novice in IT what settings to select in IE6 so that I don\'t get those messages? I already added ProZ to sites where I wanted automatic cookie handling overridden.

Thanks for this report. Apr 6, 2002

I am guessing that after setting the payment option, you went to test the deposit procedure. This would have brought you to our secure server (URLs start with \"https:\" instead of \"http:\")

Once you are on the secure server--and it is possible you still were even when you proceeded to KudoZ functions--you will be prompted if any of the content in the page is not encrypted (like images, etc.)

Apart from the inconvenience, nothing bad will happen as a result. But we will try to correct this problem so that members are not inconvenienced in this way.

Thanks for reporting this problem.

It happened to me too, Kim, but the problem seems to have disappeared after Henry\'s intervention.
