Latest update in Firefox – Password Insecurity Warning

Finally Firefox 52 is released, with a charming feature of password insecurity warning. This warning actually appears while logging into unsecure HTTP pages. When you try to login to an insecure HTTP page then this insecurity warning appears just below the password entering tab. Main purpose of this warning is just to remind a Firefox user that he’s about to enter in an insecure page. So the account security may be compromised.
