    I am thinking it has something to do with a compatibility issue that may arise with other software/browsers if it is set hire? You can always raise the level and see what happens. I am sure Triple Helix or Joe will be by to provide some further insight on the default settings!

    I have my HTTP settings set to high without problems so give it a try and if you have problems lower it one step to medium to see if that helps!

    This is exactly correct :) Additionally, using HTTP websites also conceptually makes the passwords vulnerable because they are not secured upon transmission so a lot of the protection of SafeOnline is inadvertently circumvented by design because of an insecure protocol.

    Don't you just love techno-speak o_O . I think he means as HTTP is insecure they don't bother applying some of the protection in high mode. :D.

    BTW. I have been using PSO with HTTP protection set to medium in Firefox for some time and it works a treat.
