    Is anyone else getting a 'potential security risk' message, and the advice not to proceed, when they try to access the GRO?

    I am awaiting a couple of certificates, just logged in to check their progress and all was fine.

    I've been on there quite a bit lately, doing searches. Also ordered some certificates. One was posted yesterday (a day early) and one ready for download when I got in from work tonight. No messages about security risks for me either.

    I was getting similar but to do with similar passwords. as soon as I changed the one I use on GRO all was well.

    I tried everything I could think of - I got my son to see if it was ok on his computer (he also uses Firefox), it was fine. In the end I just went adhead against the warnings advice - somehow I do not think a Government site is going to be insecure;), so I now have access again.

    Maybe you needed to clear your cache and reboot? That fixed it last time I had trouble logging on.

    Thanks Murfomurf - I had had a problem with Firefox and did a refresh, then needed to restart to get back all saved bookmarks etc and it still wouldn't play games, so I just ignored the safety warning and proceeded:eek:. I now can access the site so all is well -phew:nailbiting:

    I had a security warning, nothing to do with the GRO, it was when I went to download from an image that a trusted source had sent me. I just closed it down, retried and no problem, I put it down to a glitch, hasn't happened since.

    No trouble on the GRO site yesterday when I ordered.
