Hello,

I'm trying to access my bank site. but this "This connection is Untrusted" error pops up. I tried clicking the "I understand the risk" and Add exception. But "Certificate Status" says its valid and there no need to add exception, and there are no other option on what to do, you are not given the option to continue accessing the site either.

Thanks.

Additional info: I can get via private browsing, but not "normal" mode.

I had previously added an exception for this cert.
