Having read so many posts I can not find answer to this one! Running ESR 102.5 and accessing a Synology NAS on a LAN with direct IP (eg 192.168.1.77) usings https:\\192.168.1.77:port number
Usually use an old Firefox (52.9 ESR) for LAN traffic as last version that allows notes against bookmarks. No issues with accessing the NAS.
On using 102.5 with the https:\\ entry it ALWAYS brings up "Warning - Potential...risk ahead" and then gives the standard SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER because of course it is looking for an IP ADDRESS and you can not create a certicate for an IP ADDRESS!
This is very, very annoying every time loggng in (cache etc cleared on all exits) and older versions you could add security exceptions.
have changed the preference:- security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false
but does nothing.
Is there any way to remove this annoying fault of IP addresses as a LAN in not a secuirty isssue?
