I am running Edge in Windows 10. The home page under Xfinity Help and Support Forums is Secure. When going to a current post I see the same as you do. Since security for Windows 10 was just updated in last week or two, it might be the way Edge reads Xfinity security. It varies with different pages shown in Xfinity.

 

Are you running Edge (W10), or some other browser?

 

In the case of this forum, anyone can read most posts so it may not be a problem right here. It may be the case of Xfinity still working to fix recent vulnerablities.

This happens because Comcast is using insecure HTTP to load images into pages that are accessed with secure HTTPS. The HTTP image links seem to be contained in Employee and Expert signature blocks.

 

In Employee signatures (ex: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/My-Account-Sign-In-Xfinity-Website/Cannot-Manage-my-plan/m-p/3037168#M...) the insecure links are:

  • http://forums.xfinity.com/html/assets/a_solution.png

 

In Expert signatures (ex: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/My-Account-Sign-In-Xfinity-Website/Cannot-Manage-my-plan/m-p/3037168#M...) the insecure links are:

  • http://forums.xfinity.com/html/assets/Community-ICON.png
  • http://forums.xfinity.com/html/assets/a_solution.png

HTTPS pages that do not have posts by Employees or Experts seem to be considered secure.
