My Chromebook thinks this page: ... s?lang=eng

Is distributing malware and won't let me download .mobi Kindle books. Curious.

Here is what Google's "Learn More" page tells me:

Google Chrome blocks downloads
Chrome automatically blocks downloads that try to cause problems on your computer or device, like:

Giving you viruses
Leaking your private data
Changing your browser settings
Changing the settings on your computer or device
Adding unwanted extensions or toolbars to your browser
Why the download was blocked
Your file download may be blocked for one of a few reasons:

We think it might be a malicious, unwanted, uncommon, or insecure file.
Malicious: You tried to download malware.
Unwanted: You tried to download a deceptive piece of software. This program, disguised as a helpful download, may actually make unexpected changes to your computer or device.
Uncommon: You tried to download an unfamiliar and potentially dangerous piece of software.
Insecure: You tried to download a file or program that wasn't secure but was started on a secure page. In some cases, you can choose to download anyway.
We've found that the website you tried to download the file from has been known to distribute malware.

I notice that many of the links on the page start with http:// rather than the more modern/secure https://. I'll bet that's what's causing the issue. I'd recommend sending feedback using the feedback link at the bottom of the Church website.
