Thanks for the information.

Corrected the URL based on the information at https://www.joomla.org/rss-news-feeds.html.

See viewtopic.php?f=8&t=338733

The first sentence paragraph reads
On the Internet, security is always a concern. For that reason, you are all encouraged to subscribe to Joomla! Security Announcements [broken link] for the latest information on releases. You can read the announcements using your favorite feed reader [broken link] or have announcements emailed to you the moment they are posted in the Security Center.

:-\ Hmmm ... this is weird.

On one device, (using Firefox or Google Chrome), when I click either of the two links I referred to in my previous post, I get an error page (see the following screenshot):
secureConnectionFailed.png
However, from the same device (using Opera, Internet Explorer 11 or Safari), the feed works! See below:

Ah, but that's not all: using a different PC with Firefox, the feed page is displayed correctly. I'm wondering if the problem is that, on one of my devices, the link in the announcement translates to https://feeds.joomla.org/JoomlaSecurityNews because that link doesn't work at all.

The difference seems to lie in the resolution of the URL target between http:// and https://

I still haven't figured out why (on my first device) I cannot access the feed with Firefox because, every time I try to change the address to http://, the browser ignores what I enter and substitutes https:// instead. I'm not going to worry about it anymore. If I want to see the security news feed, I'll use a different PC or I'll use one of my other browsers instead of my preferred one.

So, perhaps my report of a "broken link" was in error after all. FWIW. :-[
