My wife uses Babylon extensively for translation. The newer versions of Safari give a warning about its not being secure and she has to jump through several hoops at that site to get it to load. Is there any way to whitelist the site in Safari so that we don't get that warning and go directly to the site (it used to do that in earlier incarnations of Safari)? I can't seem to find a workaround in Safari Preferences. She has used this site for years and, unless someone knows something, I think that there is probably no security risk.

Try editing the url to “https://...” instead of “http://...”

I'll give that a try when the site does it again. The site loads normally after I go through the links and relaunch Safari. Sometimes, even a restart causes it to load normally. I received this reply at TechSurvivors.

I just took a look and found that Jon's link is https.

The pop-up warning states that Babylon uses either TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1, "which are not secure."
