I'm attempting to download this file but it has an Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

There is no option to add an exception.

The steps I have tried to fix this are: 1) Disabled all plugins and addons 2) Pasted the URL, domain name (both the issuing website and the domain of the URL) in chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul (with and without clicking "Get Certificate") 3) Manually entered the above details into: Tools > Options > Advanced > Certificates > View Certificates > Servers > Add Exception (with and without clicking "Get Certificate") 4) Deleted the file cache 5) Disabled and then removed anti virus software and firewall 6) Emptied my hosts file 7) Renamed cert8.db 8) Created a new profile 9) Removed and reinstalled Firefox

I'm running FF 47.0

Please let me know if I should file a bug.

It looks that the server isn't configured to be accessed via a secure connection?

Why don't you use the http:// version of the link?

If that isn't working then you may have an extension that forces a secure connection.
