Re: Simple solution

Just installed it. Irony is this site fails it. At least for me.

secure.dslreports.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Edit: Oddly only Firefox (v5.0.1, fresh install) is doing it.

Firefox 5 invalidated a certain SSL certificate provider that is known to issue certificates without validating domain ownership. That's likely the issue here as my own certificate was bitten by this. The issuer in question is the lowest price issuer of SSL certificates (probably because they don't do any validation). You can issue individual exceptions for these certificates but I would verify that the certificate in question is for the actual site (verify the IP and DNS records) before doing so.

Or maybe Verizon was doing something shady.. because oddly after reading your post I re-enabled this site in the extension, ready to manually except it, but to my surprise, it is not throwing the error anymore. Hmm.

I get random cert errors from this site when I log in from different devices. Seems to be browser based.

Is the plug in compatible with V5? I'm on version 4.
