    Firefox fed me an invalid certificate error and made me add a security exception just to connect to this site.

    Hello,

    Could you please reply with some extra details to help us debug?

    a) What url did you use to connect to this site?
    b) Do you have a screenshot of the security error you encountered with the security details expanded?
    c) Does the same thing happens with other browsers?
    d) Do you have installed any specific antivirus/firewall solutions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I was on New Posts and tried to refresh.



    Internet Explorer reports the same problem when trying to reach https://www.beamng.com/forums/ from a search engine. I'm not going to bother checking from any kind of cell phone at this point. Especially since it's now 1:09 AM and I have to work tomorrow.

    Avast free antivirus, with program and definitions both recently updated.

    Can you please follow this guide and sent me a screenshot of the certificate?
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-website-certificate#w_view-a-certificate
    Also can you please verify if you have this feature enabled in your antivirus?

    Thanks again for the help debugging this issue!

    Edit: As I see you edited your post with screenshot now, can you please click at SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER
    then Copy text to clipboard and paste it here?
