Computer Connection not secure message in Firefox at Login

This just popped up this morning as far as I can tell. On both login locations, the one in the upper right corner and the one that comes up if one attempts to reply to a thread when not logged in, there's a little pop-up window that appears when clicking on either the Username or the Password fields.

The message says: "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised. Learn More. "

I'm not clicking on the link because I don't know if a Firefox script is producing the message, or if something else is.

It doesn't appear on the latest version of Safari or on Google Chrome.

Anyone else seeing it besides me?
