signing in gets me a warning about insecure connection...

Something new from Firefox. Should I be worried? Should I do something?

2. It's because the DU servers use http, not https.

HTTPS is secure, HTTP is not. Nothing can be done on your end, the admins should look into utilizing https.

3. Skinner said it was on the to do list

This was a change that was made in Firefox 52.0.
