Hi I LOVE Firefox but recently it has put a "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" block on a UK government based web site for Birth, Marriages and Deaths - https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp. This link works in other browsers. Please advise. Thanks.

Firefox doesn't have a root certificate for the certificate issuer for that site. SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER The cert chain is incomplete, according to tests. Firefox is more strict about this than other browsers, which is likely the problem.

(There are other issues with the cert as well, and would hope HM Passport Office in Merseyside finds a better source than QuoVadis Limited in the Bahamas.)
