I was helping a friend to check the status of the certificate of a website. The certificate was not approved (firefox shows de warning page) in my firefox but it was in his. I assumed it was because I had uninstalled firefox 3.6.13 and reinstalled it about a week ago. So he uninstalled his firefox software and reinstalled it. After that the site could not be viewed without the varning in firefox 3.6.13 at his computer either.

Chosen solution

You can use one of the online certificate check sties like the one I posted above.

If that indicates that the server doesn't send a full chain of certificates then you need to install the missing intermediate certificate(s) on that server to make it work without giving a SSL error.

Same problem here.

My university has obtained TERENA certificate valid to 2013 (example: https://eportal.ue.wroc.pl/login/index.php) and it's causing problems in Firefox - like it was invalid.

Just tested it on clean 3.6.13-pl install (Windows XP in a Virtual PC). See attached file.

Does this issue only occur in Firefox 3.6.13 then? Have been wrangling with my hosting company for the last two weeks now but just realised my SSL works fine in Opera and older versions of Firefox.

Is there a fix for this at all?

the chain was not complete on the server, that was why it worked in some browsers and not in others.

@1586 solutions,

I used your link above http://www.networking4all.com/en/supp.../site+check/ to verify the valid SSL for this site https://www.opftrader.com.my/opfutures/ and it's OK.

However, unable to view the page at all (the SSL just would not load), taskbar keeps having the message: [Transferring from ...]

I know this is having to do with Firefox 3.6.X. It's showing everywhere even Firefox 4, except the above version(s) of Firefox.

Please share the workaround for this? TQ

That page doesn't seem to be working in Firefox 3.5 and 3.6. It does load in Firefox 4.

Anyone got any solution?

Why does Firefox 4.0.1 still not have the Terena SSL certificate built-in? Safari and IE 8 and 9 have access to it. This is a real nuisance. Is there a specific reason for it?

(I don't need to know the workaround as I already know it. My point is, there shouldn't be a need for a workaround.)

Also, if we must deploy it into Firefox manually, how can this be automated for 7,500 Windows XP PCs and 4,000 Macs? Is there a scripting language for Firefox or can we stick it in a specific directory and Firefox will automatically absorb it?

I think it would be easier if Firefox just incorporates it. It doesn't make sense for the other major browsers to support it and Firefox doesn't.
