To Whom It May Concern,  

I'm receiving a " Warning :  Potential Security Rick Ahead " by my use of 
FireFox on my Xubuntu 18.04 Laptop (see screenshot below).  

You can see from the URL that this is the same link that you have provided.  My 
question would be :  

   - Why is Mozilla indicating that this is a Security Risk ?  
   - Also is does the Maintainers  (Chet Ramey and/or Jari Aalto)  even know 
that this is happening ?  

FYI,  This URL, that is related to this project of Bash, is the only URL that 
causes this warning to be displayed.  I have tried several of the other related 
links.  It ONLY happens to the link related to the Maintainers Page.  

The reason behind my interest to check-out this page is the recent article in 
the May 2019 issue of Linux Pro Magazine's - Command-Line - New Commands.  

So I checked my laptop's version of Bash for these seven (7) new commands.  I 
found that I currently do not have them.  I wanted to see,  if I would have to 
upgrade my version of BASH to the latest + versus + adding each command 
separately (which also can be accomplished).  

So I thought it best to bring this issue to the attention of some persons who 
can address this issue better than myself independently.  I hope that you are 
able to clear-up this situation.  I hope that you will be able to assist and I 
will also thank you for looking into (IMHO) this important finding.
