FF: Untrusted connection

Post by Gumball » Wed Apr 18, 2012 9:58 pm

Using Avant 2012 with the Firefox rendering engine, go to:

Code: Select all

https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/
The page does not load, Avant reports that it cannot be found.
Try the same with Firefox, and you get an "Untrusted Connection" page.

Avant is not providing the option to import the certificate and trust the connection.

I contacted my old friend "kudos" who advised me to try this:
- Go to: Tools >> Mozilla Firefox >> Advanced >> Encryption >> View Certificates >> Servers
- Click: Add Exception
- In the location, enter:

Code: Select all

https://trac.videolan.org/
- Click: Get Certificate
- Click: Confirm Security Exception

It works! I can now use Avant to go to the link that I was previously unable to.

PS: Sorry that I had to use code tags for the URL's, but I was not allowed to post links :-(

PPS: kudos says "HELLO" and sends his regards!

This does not work for me, I JUST WANT IT GO BE NORMAL. Would removing and reinstalling it resolved this issue?

I don't think reinstalling will help, i had similar problem. In my case it was incorrect date/time setting.

Take a look at the fix at the bottom of what i just posted, it might help:
