Hi all, I have an Apache site on Kubuntu 20.04 with a certificate signed by my private CA. I've added the root CA ceritificate in Firefox and in Chromium.

Firefox throws a SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE error

Chromium accept the certificate as valid

What can I do?

Notes: the site url is "https://hdev.h.net" (with an internal IP address inside my lab)

Attached there are:

- the authority settings page

Certificate Error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

Completely disable Firefox update on Ubuntu

I am using Firefox on an old Ubuntu machine, and found myself unable to disable the auto update feature of Firefox. I understand why Firefox wants to do auto update, but for me personally it's negatively impacting my productivity. Many times I was looking up reference materials only to be told that I need to restart Firefox because it just updated itself. Imagine how frustrating it is, especially when I use the Private Browsing mode a lot to avoid having to clean up browsing history and cached files later. All in all, while the auto update feature might be good for some users, it's just not working for me, so I want it to be disabled.

I tried a couple of things. First, there's nothing in the "Preferences" page related to the auto update. Second, I tried to change the value of "app.update.auto" in the "about:config" page to false, and it still does auto update. Finally, I tried to add a "policies.json" file to "/etc/firefox/", with the following content:

{ "policies":

  {
    "AppAutoUpdate": false,
    "DisableAppUpdate": true,
    "DisableTelemetry": true
   }

}

Yet it still does auto updates. As a matter of fact, it updated itself to version 80 just now. This driving me crazy. Any useful suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

I would like to use HTTPS to access my router's web interface without having to bypass the "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page.

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

Hello,

Firefox is blocking some website because it says it's not secure (see picture). I don't give a .... So I want to access the website anyways. However, there is NO way to do that, NONE. I've searched everywhere. So I can only rely on you guys. How can I force the connection or bypass the F security, or get rid of it, or something... anything.

Here is a historic of my tests : My issue is simple. 2 days ago I could surf on some website completely fine. Then all of a sudden half my website get SO CALLED "The connection has timed out".

- Test server : So I go on the usual website-server-is-down to test if the server is down. The website itself is perfectly fine according to 5 testing website. - Test server 2 : Then I go through a "browser inside browser" website to test it again (dunno how it's called). I can access the main page then navigate fine on all test-browser. The website is therefore fine. - "Not secure" : Despite the viciously misleading message saying "connection timed out" that makes you believe the website is down and gone, it is actually fine, as proven above. It's just for some god unknown reason Firefox decided to block it, without telling you it's actually blocking it (nice move!). - No button : I searched but could not find a way to either force the connection or create security exception. I tried disabling all security in "privacy" tab in the option, no deal. - Certificate : I also went to try and add the website as an exception in the certificate list, but Firefox pretends it cannot connect to the website, therefore you cannot add the certificate. - Security.enterprise : I have removed the access from Avast to Firefox allowing me to unlock security.enterprise_roots.enabled. Once I had it unlocked, I tried either True or False, but no deal (including reboots comp & browser) - I spent 4 hours searching solutions on the web, but couldn't fin any. Is Firefox actively preventing me for surfing the web as I like... ?

In the end, I still cannot access this website. And I wanna say to Mozilla : It's my own liberty if I want to go and shoot myself in the foot by visiting a so-called "unsecured website". I should be able to do so if I want to...

Anyway, if any gosu out there has the skill, please help ? ^^; Thanks

I can't seem to disable the certificate verification on Mozilla Firefox. As you can see on the screenshot, the error code is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I tried multiple solutions, including :

- https://smallbusiness.chron.com/disable-firefox-rejecting-certificates-59249.html - The three solutions from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20088/is-there-a-way-to-make-firefox-ignore-invalid-ssl-certificates - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234483 - All of the solutions from https://browserhow.com/how-to-fix-mozilla-firefox-ssl-certificate-error/ - https://itectec.com/superuser/how-to-make-firefox-ignore-all-ssl-certification-errors/

and so on.

Is there a way to disable this for only one website, or at least for all website ? I got a web interface which is self signed (if I understand everything correctly) where we can bypass the certificate "error" but it would be great if I just could configure Firefox to skip it entirely for this interface (as I'm certain it's not insecure and even if it was I'd still use it because I can't use anything else for now.

I know Chrome has a command line which do exactly what I want (--ignore-certificate-errors) but Firefox is a must go for me so I'd prefer to find an option on this browser.

Thank you for your time.

I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.
