Weird it is happening to you...

That's right, the first one was a topic link.

Wonder why it is only you...

I never use the notification emails, I have disabled that forum option.

I find it much easier just to click on the "Show new replies to your posts." link and that gets a list of all topics I have posted in.

See image, my forum Theme is set to the Babylon theme, which will be a different layout from most, but that link should be present in the other themes.

I get the same certificate warning if I try to view any part of the forums in the https format. I had been just using straight http. It says the certificate is not valid and recommends that I don't visit the site.

once you're ready to take the risk  ;D ...you can keep browsing the forum in https, no problem  ;) it's just a certificate that needs to be renewed or validated. Remains the question why do I get https links in my notifications and no one else does...I checked my profile settings here and there's nothing related to that.
