This bug is occurring on all of our sites' login pages; we have valid security certificates from VeriSign, but Firefox reports that "The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown."
The pages are as follows:
If there is a logical reason that our security certificate isn't being verified by Firefox, please let us know so we can properly report the security information in our pages.
This may be the same issue seen in this report:
Will test and follow up.
These sites all work for me - I assume you fixed the problem server-side?
Johnathan: Did you tried a new profile ?

I get the issue with a new profile and that usually means that there is a server misconfiguration.

 Harry Singh:
The webserver needs the intermediate CA's from Verisign

Firefox will cache the intermediate certificates if you visit a page /must not be the same) with such a cert the first time.
I know the reason for this bug.
because I use selenium to start firefox and I don't use firefoxProfileTemplate options.So the firefox which start by selenium don't know the CA about Verisign.
