New Firefox points out unsecure login page

Firefox got updated to v52.0. Now it notifies when sites are unsecure (http://) as opposed to secure (https://). The login page here is unsecure (I had not noticed that until now).

Can it be secured?

Same here. I have my login saved in regular mode but always get on using private window.

I don't figure the CIA/NSA would have a problem even with a secure site if they were interested. Other hackers, the same. The only safe way is to totally go off the grid.

So I just go ahead and login.

If you can't or won't stand behind our troops and law enforcement; feel free to stand in front of them.

Yes it can, by installing an SSL certificate for the domain. Will Autoguide do it? That's highly doubtful, since at a glance, it looks like all of their forums are lacking one: Automobile Reviews, Videos, Pictures and Automobile Prices

It's a shame, since you can get them for free nowadays if you have access to the server's OS.

We are actually working on rolling it out on the network in a way that doesn't involve a third party like suggested.

I haven't used Firefox since Microsoft copied it for their Windows 10.
