    I just changed out my wireless router and changed to Firefox at the same time (on a new macbook pro... first mac). Now I'm getting a popup when I post saying that the info I'm sending is being sent over an unencrypted network. My wireless is set to WPA personal. Thats encrypted, right? Whats up with the firefox warning?

    The Firefox warning is about forms that don't use SSL (individual sessions to Web sites), not your wireless connection. For many forms (forum postings etc.) that's normal and generally fine. One would usually only care about unencrypted sessions when sending personal information, such as during purchases.
