When I am logged into the website I am constantly being required to clear security warnings - this seems to have increased recently.

Having added Foldit to my trusted sites list I am now being bombarded with messages telling me Facebook wants access. That is not goingto happen.
I'm using IE.

I also tried to add two small screen shots but it didn't work.

I added a line to my 'hosts' file as soon as Facebook junk began appearing on this site.

0.0.0.0 facebook.com

In Windows XP, the 'hosts' file is located in c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

Seems to have stopped now. Often caused by referencing content which is not within the secured area.
