I'm getting the same error. And this probably belongs in the technical support forum instead of this one. (Yes, I clicked on "report to moderator" to alert them to this.)

Been getting the same result from Chrome regarding G-R in general, so I've been using Firefox from that point forward. I'm guessing the security certificates haven't been renewed, so it's sending a generic warning.

Isn't there also something with some of the newer browsers not liking things with http rather than https (even though it doesn't really matter for a site like this, as opposed to something with information that people might really want to steal, like banking and such)?

Yes, it is safe. Unless my computer got a virus yesterday and I'm unaware of it, it is fine.

Just tested it on the Opera browser, it's saying the Security Certificate expired 9 days ago (July 14) so that would be the problem there.

Sorry for not posting in here, guys -- I just now noticed this thread.

That said, we're not really sure why this is happening...as far as I know, neither Marc nor Chelsea is sure how to fix it.

Actually, the problem's pretty straightforward - security certificate has expired and it's not something that's taken care of by the webhost automatically - which is doubly a problem since the web as a whole is gradually moving towards pushing https and secure/certified websites.

Was going to get our certificate restored through the site backend for two years but hit a paywall with the webhost I do not have the credentials to move past.

Problem has been dealt with for the time being, site's security certificate is valid through October 31st while longer term renewal is explored.

If you're using the https version of the link, you're going to have the problem for a while.

If you use the http version of the link, you won't.
