Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE

more options

So I have a website that had SSL revoked, but I just got it reissued and installed/activated.

Since it's back I'm still having issues connecting to the website on Firefox/Safari still, but not chrome.

Even though if I personally fix the error issue it's probably happening to other people using the same browser (I think?)

So my question is will the error ever go away on itself over time or is my website inaccessible to anyone using firefox unless they fix the error themselves in their OWN browser settings?

Did you previously create an exception or used other workarounds to access this website ?


You can remove all data stored in Firefox for a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox for this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data for that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data for that website will be saved once again.


Try to rename the cert9.db file (cert9OLD.db) and remove a possible 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.

You can cross-check whether it is "just Firefox" using this test page:
