I have a webconfig interface's server and it doesn't open. I tried to set FALSE in security.use_mozillapkix_verification but i tink this was removed from this version. I don't belive have to use IE to do this! Someone has any sugestion?

Chosen solution

Some certificate issues may also be fixed in the Firefox 33.1 and possibly in the next Firefox 34 version as proposed fixes hadn't made it in current Firefox 33.0.x releases. So you can check this again when the Firefox 33.1 version gets released.

You can add it back by right clicking on the page about:config and creating the entry.

However I do not recommend disabling it for security purposes.

Although you could turn off PKIX in Firefox 31 and 32, there's no way to turn it off in Firefox 33.

If this is crucial to your work (or your happiness), you could switch to the "extended support release" (ESR) version of Firefox. This version is designed for large businesses that need a slower rate of feature changes and is based on Firefox 31. More info: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/organizations/

The longer term solution is for the developers to learn more about the various problems with self-issued/self-certified certificates that PKIX is rejecting and refine its approach. If you want to participate in those discussions, it would be useful to know more about the problem. For example, is it a router or other off-the-shelf device, or is it an internal application, etc.

jscher2000, I am downloading the corporate Firefox version to test this. I'd be thankful to help. I have two "HP ProLiant" Servers and use the webconfigurator to access the ILO's settings.
