Hello,

I asked the browser to accept an expired site certificate; it turns out, though, that the original owner of the site no longer uses that domain :{(

Fortunately, the phishing form was too obvious :{)

How do I tell the browser that I really don't want to use that site anymore?

With gratitude and regards, -steve

Did you look in the Certificate Manager?

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Certificates: View Certificates

You can rename the cert9.db file (cert9OLD.db) and remove the previously used cert8.db file in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed to remove intermediate certificates and exceptions that Firefox has cached.

If this has helped to solve the problem then you can remove the renamed cert9OLD.db file. Otherwise you can undo the rename and restore cert9.db.
