I use Mozilla Firefox v.3.0.16 (32 bit) on CentOS 5.4
I am *not* getting warnings like that, with Gmail or with the URL you
posted above. Which version of Mozilla (Firefox?) are you using?

I have seen warnings like that, but not with Gmail.  That means that
some of the information on the web page you are accessing is not
encrypted.

Yes, it is encrypted, but sometimes not all of the information on a
web page is encrypted.
