https vs http for bbPress URL
I have a navigation button on my website linking to a bbPress forum, which works fine in IE, but won’t work in Firefox. Apparently it is a security issue.
My host Support has advised that changing the bbPress URL from https protocol to http will resolve the issue, but I’m wondering why https is the default protocol when you install bbPress?
I am aware that https ensures security for exchange of credit card info etc, but in the case of my forum, there won’t be any such security issues as far as I know. The forum is just a place for students to post research proposals and the like, and feedback to each other, and for their lecturers to do likewise.
Does anyone know, please, if there is any reason I should NOT change the forum URL from https to http?
