When I came to SHHF today to log on for the first time in a while, as I entered my password, I was told this connection isn't secure and log-ins here may be compromised. I also noticed the non-secure logo up in the address bar while at the log-in page. I never used to get that warning message at SHHF, and I've been using Firefox for years. Any idea why I'm getting that now?

It's might simply be because FireFox is informing you of that now? As we don't take credit card info or anything, we're not required to have a secured connected, and thus have never had one!

I know I'm incredibly late and the only reason I logged in was to see if it still worked.

However, it says Not Secure because https is not activated for the domain itself. It's an automated response from most web browsers as it is being rather actively promoted to have SSL securing your connections. Google has also declared they will favor websites with https over http in their search results. It does not mean your data is unsafe here though.
