Disable untrusted connection

Posted

Hello,

I use firefox for work and use only certain sites and this message is really annoying, especially for intranet sites. So, I really want to know how to totally disable this security type of checks.

I already spent to much time and this, I don't want to do debugging or stuff like that, I just want to totally disable any check for "untrusted sites" and yes I am fully aware of the dangers, attacks etc.

And actually I find it quite annoying that Firefox blocks me from accesing something I want. Warnings are OK, but totally blocking me, not even "I understand this, add exception ... bla bla" is not kosher.( the error is sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Thank you.

Thank you for the answers guys. None of it worked though. Anyways I will uninstall firefox, If I really want to see a site, I should be able to see it, security concerns or not, I don't need firefox to filter my browsing. Using chrome now, no problem what so ever.

Thank you.

That is not possible, you need to investigate the cause of the untrusted error and check who is the issuer of the certificate.

There is security software like Avast and Kaspersky that intercept secure connections and send their own certificate.

If you can't inspect the certificate via "I Understand the Risks" then try this:

Open the "Add Security Exception" window by pasting this chrome URL in the Firefox location/address bar and check the certificate:

  • chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul

In the location field of this window type or paste the URL of the website.

  • retrieve the certificate via the "Get certificate" button
  • click the "View..." button to inspect the certificate in the Certificate Viewer

You can inspect details like the issuer and the certificate chain in the Details tab of the Certificate Viewer. Check who is the issuer of the certificate. If necessary then you can attach a screenshot that shows the certificate viewer.

Does your IT support Firefox? If so, they probably are familiar with this issue and can advise on the best workaround. For example, if you are accessing through a proxy, you probably need to import the proxy's signing certificate into Firefox as an Authority certificate. That's a one-and-done operation, much easier than making individual site exceptions if that's the issue.
