Hello, im a web developer and have come accross a problem which only occurs in the firefox browser.
When i design a website, i use the www version of it always, and have redircts for all other instances, eg; mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk http://www.mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk https://mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk
So they all end up at the secure www version of the website. This is done in the .htaccess file and works great in Chrome, Edge, Explorer etc just not firefox.
In firefox i get the error
Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead
Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to boothandco.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.
What can you do about it?
The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.
Ignoring it then procceeds to the full https://www. but that warning screen will be enough to put potential visitors off no doubt.
Is there an "easy fix" for this or is the only way to solve the problem to use up more SAN's and double up on www and non-www versions of each website?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
