How do i bypass "This connection is untrusted"

Posted

I'm trying to get to a website and i get an error saying "firefox cannot connect securely to the website".

The only option i'm presented with is "Get me out of here!"

Under technical details i'm presented with some gibberish about an invalid security certificate and error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

Its my device. I want to take the risk but there is seemingly no way to bypass it. This is absurd. Its my device. I understand the risks. Why is there no way to bypass this?

Firefox for Android has a more limited interface than desktop versions of Firefox. Is the SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER code a link/button that provides a coded version of the certificate?

Can you access the error page in Firefox on your Mac and obtain more details about why the "Add Exception" button is not available? The most common reason would be that you previously visited the site when all was well and Firefox saved a Strict Transport Security (HSTS) flag for the site. In that case, Firefox won't let you create an exception.
