Rootmedic Website Warning
Why, when I try to go to the Rootmedic website, does Mozilla Firefox give me the following warning?

I think this belongs in the other websites section.

Mods, please move this thread if it is in the wrong sub-forum.

FF doesn't like certain java/php script in it. If something is "broken" within the coding, it doesn't like it either. However, with that being said, I have never received this error when going to RM on FF myself. Usually, this indicates something within your host file showing up in FF's security.

Or you could just ask me! It appears to be your trend micro that is causing it. I have never ever had this problem using a variety of security programs. The only place you put any secure info is on the checkout page(your paypal login, no cc numbers etc) and that is a paypal server.

Can you take screen shots and email them to me at Are you typing the address in or clicking a link?

google doesn't think it is a problem....

Is anyone else with trend micro having this problem? Avast gives me none. I am verifying site through norton for testing and will have google crawl it soon.

Thanks for getting back with me; in answer to your question I clicked the link in your signature.

Is it possible your signature link is taking me to a site that is then re-directing me to your actual website?

OverStocked 06-15-2010 05:59 PM

It is being redirected twice. Once by which is planted tank and once by which is very reputable. Both are safe redirects. I am having google crawl and norton as well. There is no security risk in the site or links to it, so it seems odd for it to cause this type of reaction.

In about 2 friggin weeks Norton will have checked my site...

Seattle_Aquarist 06-15-2010 06:06 PM

I am not a computer whiz, but my guess would be that it is the re-directing that Firefox is having trouble with.

There are probably more qualified TPT members that would understand this better than me.

It is trend micro, not firefox. That being said, click the link in the banner at the top of the page and tell me if it does it. Then just type the address in and tell me.

Sorry, my bad....Trend micro. There is no Rootmedic banner at the top of the page.

Click refresh once or twice:proud:

Ok, did it.....and was directed to the website. Trendmicro must have a problem with the signature link.

Thanks for the help! Mods may delete this thread if they so choose.
