issuer certificate invalid - firefox 36.0.4 - internal website

Posted

I have a few internal web servers that are used to manage networking equipment. These web sites get this error.

"Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to XXX. Issuer certificate is invalid. (Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)"

I have added exceptions. did not change the symptom.

If I revert to an older version of FF I have no problems.

Obviously I would like to continue using FF but more and more of the things i do on my internal network are no longer working wth FF. It seems every update breaks something else i used to be able to do.

Getting VERY old and Ive about had it. Please fix this.

yay.. a policy... intended to break things...

Pretty much done with FF then. I have a JOB to do and when one of my tools makes my job MUCH more difficult. Then that tool needs to be thrown away.
