I tried surfing to the Mt. Gox site and my computer gave me a security warning.  Subsequently I went there via explorer rather than Mozilla and over-rode the security warning.  Once there, I noticed the "green thing" on the web bar didn't appear?

1. Is this a bogus site?
2. Is there something wrong with my computer?
3. Should I refrain from logging in to Mt. Gox after ignoring security warning?  So far, I haven't.

It's showing up green in my browsers.  If it isn't for you, then you should not log in.

Bitcoin Fact: the price of bitcoin will not be $20k or greater for more than 30 consecutive days at any point in the next 5 years

I would definitely refrain from logging in if you do not see the green verification from Tibanne.

Could somehow be on a phishing website. Which would imply your router or computer DNS server has been compromised.

Clear all cache/cookies and restart browser. Then return to the website and verify there is the green seal of approval. You should not need to bypass security on the site as the SSL certificate is valid.

Thanks.  Looks good now, though and the problem went away.

Don't login I got the same warning.

I thought you had given up gox.
