What's with Marketforce's message saying my browser is out of date and kaput Dec 1 with some security baloney?

It says:

WARNING! You are using an old browser that is not safe. As of December 1, 2016, we are changing our security protocols and you will not be able to use this site unless you upgrade. Please see [securetls.marketforce.com] for more information. Action Required : Learn more

Above is the message I get in red across the top of the primary frame I'm in when when I scroll down, and the referenced hyperlink attached to "Learn more" is thus, but it does not work:

[securetls.marketforce.com]

In all humility, I'm the one who is degreed in E-Business Security, such feldercarb does not impress me very much. I use Chrome and it is ALWAYS up to date. TLS 1.3 is likely involved, and presumably has to do with implementing some block or stream cipher implementation of whatever sort -- Like really, nothing is wrong with my browser, silly rabbit....

Here are a few snippets about the subject, and while TLS 1.3 is allegedly prime time, it's not exactly the de-facto standard in terms of current across the board implementation, but the sooner the better of course:

And yes, Marketforce's blurb says December 1, 2016. It is so very heartwarming they can be counted upon to be the good old reliable mixed up outfit they are... Like really, having the default arrangement of shops in one's "My Shops" listing as by shop number, and not date, and there being no way to make by date the default.

Ah, here's a list of the stuff Marketforce uses to clog up your browsers, cookies and yes, facebook.net is and will forevermore be blocked, among others I will not allow. Only 7 of the below are tolerated:

marketforce.com
shopper.marketforce.com
ssltest.marketforce.com

angular-ui.github.io
blueimp.github.io
facebook.net
connect.facebook.net

maps.googleapis.com

Anyway, I fixed it and the message is currently gone. But then, it is so much fun to have Marketforce's poor dear confused computers and whoever pretends to run them act like they actually have a clue about, uh, what, anyway? I see significant evidence of the right hand not knowing of the existence of the left hand, nor of anything else that does, could, should, might, or even need to exist. Such a shame I'm too old to be of much if any help, back in the day I coulda fixed all that's broken I can see now in a couple weekends, maybe less. Of course, back then I could work over 16 hours a day, had a much sharper mind and significantly superior memory and analytical skills, and last but not least, the old noggin hummed along like a supercomputer that hasn't been invented yet.....

.... at least we know who Marketforce is sharing our computers with now, don't we? But don't feel bad, here's what Bank of America plays with, and yes, many of 'em are and will forever be blocked on my system:

A world full of folks more like moi would simply block all but first party cookies and plenty of other stuff and simply say no to baloney, period, but then, ya gotta know stuff to know what stuff matters...

Yes, I get the same thing.

But I'm not the computer whiz you obviously are.

I couldn't get the danged website to accept my photos at ALL.

Kudos to you.
tl;dr. Can someone summarize the OP?

Shopping the Greater Denver Area, Colorado Springs and in-between in Colorado. 28 year old male and willing to travel! Badged for Denver International Airport.

Basically Chrome is smarter than the average bear, so MF's server is confused. New security protocols on servers don't always play nicely with your favorite browser. MF seems to favor IE and other "stupid" browsers, and it is looking for non-existent updates on Chrome (the protocols are already integrated in the browser). At least I think that is the gist of it. My son is a wweb security professional and rants about this stuff, too.

There are workarounds for the wonky pictures, but explaining how is above my pay grade, and the fixes may compromise browser security.
I got the same thing, and have a new computer windows 10...nothing is out of date, I have updated.....could it be them?

Live consciously....
I received that message last night while trying to report 3 hardware stores. One went through, one got stuck in incomplete status, and the third got removed from my board due to it becoming overdue. Help Desk was not there to help. I sent a text to one of my schedulers and she fixed it.

ROTFLMFAO!! Thank you.
Yes, I see that flash on the browser page when I go to Marketforce then it logs in like a champ. I am using Linux Open Suse with the Chromium browser for Linux.

OK...SO MY HEAD HURTS

"Ah, here's a list of the stuff Marketforce uses to clog up your browsers, cookies and yes, facebook.net is and will forevermore be blocked, among others I will not allow. Only 7 of the below are tolerated:

marketforce.com

So, I only see the first four in the above list as pertaining to Market Force. The rest don't. But it states that those are all of the stuff Marketforce uses. I am confused. Marketforce uses "facebook.net"? I am thinking that they don't, but it is on that list.

I wish I could understand all of this. I may be dumb but I am not stupid.
I've sent feedback on multiple occassions about their system... I'm sorry but I really don't think it's too much to ask for a date sort by default. Who schedules fast food a month and a half in advance? It's like i have to plan my weekend a month from now around these assignments. I'm not a full time shopper this is just my $.02.
