Hmmm, that's me stumped. And you're starting from https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=login, not some other link?
Yep, that's the start point.

And for me as well.  I have no pre-typed passwords.....it just give me an "password incorrect" message almost everytime.
IF YOU REALLY ENJOY THIS SITE AND WISH TO CONTINUE,THEN PLEASE WIGGLE UP TO THE BAR AND BUY A SUBSCRIPTION OR SOME SWAG FROM THE MILNET.CA STORE OR IF YOU WISH TO ADVERTISE PLEASE SEND MIKE SOME DETAILS.

I've been having the "incorrect password" problem as well the first time I tried to log in. It almost always worked on the second attempt.

Your discussion about the https above had me look t things closer and I noted that the shortcut I had brought me to an "unsecure" version of the login page. I've now deleted that and replaced my link with the one above and so far it seems to log me in properly the first time. I'll keep an eye out.

WOW!
I have not been @ army.ca in awhile and not using a shortcut, I typed army.ca in the location bar, hit enter and the page brought me to the "Guest" page and I thought I must have deleted my cookies, so I clicked on 'login'. It also gave me that the login username was not secure and sure enough at the location bar (Firefox) it indicated it was not a secure page. I did not attempt to login, but looked in the Admin folder and found your post.
Using the link provided gave me a secure Login page and here I am!
Something must be amiss.   ???

It's this:

https://www.thesslstore.com/blog/firefox-chrome-warning-about-insecure-login-pages/

In a nutshell, use https://army.ca, not http://army.ca. Solutions for Navy.ca, Air-Force.ca, etc. are planned for Sept, when we have to buy new security certificates.

Reminder: subscribing or donating helps Mike keep the lights on, and the upgrades coming - much as we may cringe when that happens ;D
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
