Something REALLY weird happened when I logged in tonight.

After typing in my username/password and I hit enter, Windows media player popped up wanting me to play some kind of video. It asked me if I wanted to play it using windows media player or to cancel so I hit cancel.

So the site is safe, right? Because I just disabled "block reported attack sites" in the security section of firefox to get here . I couldn't get past log-in.

Same thing happened to me at home and now here at work. I had to uncheck something in my internet security to let me in.

Hi everyone! Back online! there may STILL be a google notice seen by some, but that notice should be removed in the next few hours. Site is now secure.
Sorry again for all the hassles.

Keep getting a pop up box wanting username & password. I hit cancel then it brings me into the sight. Pops up, cancel, again, cancel, etc.,

I managed to make it this far...Here's the message from the pop up box;

The server www.pets.ca at Welcome to Pets.ca, enter your user credentials now to enter. requires a username and password.

Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).

No fonts, colors or smileys....:O(

quick reply doesn't seem to be working, either... or else I ran out of patience canceling out the dialogue box that pops up every time I change a page.

Marko, I sent you a pic via FB of the box. I would have posted it here but "attach files" isn't here. Smiley's not working for me either.

Me too. Had to hit Cancel 10 times just with this post before it would go away and countless times to even get here. This after not being able to get on at all since mid day yesterday.

ETA: And another 23 times to submit and then add this edit. Prolly the Save Changes will need another multiple cancels.
