Seems to be caused by the latest version of Firefox 55.0.3 (does not happen in Internet Explorer 11)

I am hoping its a false alarm...

Yes, this is a new thing. I only just discovered it when I switched to Chrome a couple of days ago. I reported it to Google as an error.

While I don't have access to the deep workings of the site, as far as I have seen/experienced there's nothing dangerous on here. I believe it's a false positive.

I alerted Robert to the problem, and he got his peeps to take care of it. Once they figured out the problem they submitted it to Google to mark as safe. It appears it's all good again.

Forum was down Monday, 10/1/2017 11pm CST. I hope no one was inconvenienced by this. Upgrades were needed, and all should be fine now.
