Posted

I Log into the website www.esic.in and have to do the security exemption again and again to access the website.

at first it shows untrusted connection and I tick the option for permanently store the exception and then it allows the access to the webpage and after working on the same when i logg off and try to log in again it gives the message and same untrusted connection.

I click on add exemption but the permanently store exception option doesnot appear and then I have to clear history and then do the exception again.

Can you look into this.

What kind of security exception do you mean?

Is this about mixed content (shield icon or the location bar) or something else?

Helpful Reply

the Security exceptions are as per the screenshot.

The first screenshot shows its untrusted site and then I add it to the exception.

But after working in the website for sometime and then logging off or during the working the website doesnt respondes and when i close and reopen the website it again gives the untrusted page and when i click the add to exception page then it gives the details as per screenshot 3 where the exception is not available.

I have to then clear the history and then login and do from step 1. this is very very ... time consuming.

Can anyone help me on this

Someone or something is changing things on this server. I now get a different certificate in Chrome and Firefox which identifies a person rather than a URL. I'm not sure it's trustworthy for any sensitive information.

By the way, the fastest way to clear history for a single site probably is the "Forget About this Site" feature. It's available in two places:

  • right-click context menu on a history entry for the site (e.g., Ctrl+h for history sidebar or Ctrl+Shift+h for Library)
  • on the about:permissions page, after selecting the right from the list on the left side, the button in the upper right corner

This still may take a while if you have a lot of cached pages for the site.

Hi jscher and corel,

The Untrusted connection is due to the certificate not valid.

I have tried the chain.zip and when I install those My firefox doesnt at all open the website.

May be there is some other way for it.

Apologies if this sounds like a rant, but... That site needs to clean up its act! If they can't follow their certificate issuer's step-by-step instructions to install multiple certificates, do you trust them to secure your data?

I only need to install the root certificate with the trust bit set for websites and then visit https://nicca.nic.in/ to get Firefox store the other intermediate certificates. If you have set any exceptions on past visits then you first need to remove those. This is a case where Firefox doesn't have a root certificate installed.
