Security Certificate
      #949269 - 25/10/11 05:15 PM
Firefox told me the security certificate for this site had expired, and I had to overide the warning to get on here.

Not sure if it's just me...

Hi Jim,

I'm a Firefox user too, currently 7.0.1, and so far I've not had any warnings. As you visit the site regularly I'm wondering if Firefox is calling your cache 1st and the certificate expired since your last visit. If so, all should be OK now. But let us know if you have repeat problems.

Andy

Hi Jim,

This question has already been answered in our support forum - you can read the thread here - but to summarise the thread, it's because both our website and the people we host with has their own certificate. In some browsers this can cause problems as it loads the wrong certificate first (theirs) which isn't registered to our domain name, hence the warning.

We are VeriSign registered - you can view the certificate in our shop area.

I'll move this thread into our Support area as it relates to a technical issue not website feedback.

JJ

Thanks, Jennifer. I'll just leave the security check exception for this site in place so I don't get the message every time.
