Since the new forum was released I has been getting an annoying warning when I try downloading anything, it happens only in this forum and is making my downloads much slower:

Translation: dragon.png cannot be downloaded safely [Discard]

1613274677164.png
Translation: Save / More information

When I click on the "More information" option, it shows me this page:

It says the forum is a virus, malware, spam, and more!
(An we all know is not true!)

Are you having this issue?
If you are, which is your browser?

Seems like a security setting in your browser. I don't see any reason why a png download should be blocked or manually approved. I get it with .js files and .exe files, which I think is pretty normal.

I also think is very weird, look even when I try downloading the image in your signature:

Can you please try downloading any image and see if you get this warning?

I've ran into the same oddity here too, only starting after the recent forums update. Also using Chrome here. Oddly enough, it doesn't always seem to happen. For example, saving the image from Shaz's signature causes the warning, but saving the image of Stramin posted above didn't cause the warning.

Oh, you are totally right! Thank you for give me this info, I figured what is happening.

I just noticed there is an error on the console about it:

So, the problem is the SSL, when we try downloading a "non secure" (http) image using the "secure" (https) forum as intermediary, it warning us and try to convert it to https.

This is a problem because the most resources links on the forum were posted many years ago, when SSL was not mandatory.

I bet all the chromium browsers will have this problem in the future, including edge, opera, vivaldi, brave, and more.

Yes, I got the error when I tried to save my signature image. When I changed my sig to use https: for the image, I was able to download it without the error.
