After upgrading to Firefox 10.0.2 there is no way to proceed to a website with an invalid security certificate. How do you proceed to these websites in the new release? The fault page only has a button that says "Try again."
Using Firefox 10.0.2 for Mac.
In trying to proceed to various websites (corporate such as dlnet.delta.com (expired certificate), government such as https://www.homeport.navy.mil/links/owa-navy-links/ ) with "invalid" security certificates, Firefox 10.0.2 does not have a button on the error page to continue on to the website. How can you do this using Firefox 10.0.2? I have not found any settings in Firefox preferences to enable this capability either.

Visiting those pages in Firefox 11 on Windows 7 I get the standard (traditional) error page with the various buttons/options. Not sure whether this is a difference between Fx10 and Fx11, or our respective add-ons, or something else.
Can you attach a screenshot of the error pages that you see?
Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).
The certificate from dlnet.delta.com has expired on March 5, so they should have renewed the certificate by now.
The certificate from www.homeport.navy.mil hasn't expired, but you may need to pass other domains that might have.

Here is a screenshot of the message that I am receiving, not only for the dlnet site, but for all the government sites (which is "normal" - they've always been like this, but I used to be able to go to those websites anyway on Firefox, but not after the update). Thanks for your help.
You shouldn't be seeing certificate errors on Government (mil) sites on Mac.
The required DoD certificates should be installed by default on Mac and shouldn't show an expired or other error message.

I've always gotten an error message on mil websites and have to "continue to the website" to get to the CAC login page.
However, that is not the issue. The issue is that there appears to be no option on the new version of Firefox to get to websites with a certificate error. A user should be able to get to a website that has a certificate error. I can get to these websites on Safari, IE and Chrome. I prefer to use Firefox. How do I proceed to websites with a certificate error in Firefox? Thx.
The feature isn't missing from the browser, at least on Windows (see attached). However, for some yet-to-be-determined reason, your system is displaying a completely different error page.
Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
Just upgraded to Firefox 11.0 and it works normally again. Thanks.
