Firefox doesn't like this site

Postby Barry Kirsten » 21 Feb 2017, 17:04

Apparently something has changed here, because as of today I can't connect with Firefox. I get a message:

Your connection is not secure

The owner of forum.largeformatphotography.com.au has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

My solution is to use my other browser, Chrome, which still connects OK. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I use Firefox and just called in today, not an issue with anything.

My Firefox gave a similar message about Photo.net about a week ago. The next day everything was fine. This site has always loaded sweetly. Maybe there's an software update drifting through the Firefox universe.

It may depend on what version of Firefox you run. I always keep everything up to date, and the latest version of Firefox is "51.0.1 (64-bit)".

I think what it'll need is an SSL certificate generating for the site. I can do this and will try and sort it out this week.

When I said "all is well", I omitted to say that was for HTTP, not HTTPS. Sorry if I misled you, Alastair.

Good luck with the certificate.
