I run a Private Certificate Authority for my personal use and just to learn about SSL Certs. However, with the current build of FireFox I'm on ( 31 ) I can no longer visit sites I've secured with SSL Certs signed by this certificate authority, even though these SSL certs work just perfectly fine in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I keep getting a "sec_error_inadequate_cert_type" error. I can only assume that the certs I've been issuing are incorrect in some way, but the error is so vague and the error page doesn't specify more.
I only discovered this when I realized some of my SSL certs had expired, and I went to re-issue them.
One of the certs that hasn't expired yet but is experiencing problems can be found here:
One of the Certs I've tried re-issuing, matching fields included as closely as I can to a Google SSL cert that I looked up is here:
These certificates were generated using the application called SimpleAuthority, found here: http://simpleauthority.com/
A Site like Networking4All.com seems to believe the Certs are valid, excepting the CA that is Self Signed: http://www.networking4all.com/en/support/tools/site+check/report/?fqdn=phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com&protocol=https
Interestingly enough, using a different site like SSLShopper shows an error similar to FF31: http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://phpmyadmin.endofevolution.com
The certs are running on an Apache Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.10
The CA Cert is in FireFox's store as trusted.
If needed, I can provide certs.
