Invalid SSL certificate prevents access to website
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0 Build ID: 20120825202003 Steps to reproduce: When I go to https://coa.inducks.org I am rightfully told that the certificate is invalid coa.inducks.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on 09/01/12 04:01. The current time is 09/02/12 00:11. (Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate) when I click on "Add exception..." I am told that the certificate is valid and can not add it to the exception list no matter what I do. As a result I can not access to the website. I am using Firefox 15. It is possible that I am using a cookie that slighlty change the behavior of coa.inducks.org, however I can make any further test if there's a need to. See screenshots: http://fr.outducks.org/richard/1.png http://fr.outducks.org/richard/2.png Actual results: As I wrote I can not access the website. Expected results: The "Exception..." dialog box should recognize that the certificate is invalid and let me add an exception if I want to.
It seems the bug was not reproducable because users without some specific cookies that I had were redirected to the http version of coa.inducks.org. I have now changed the website so that after cleaning all cookies the same problem appears. Let's see if someone can reproduce the problem.
On Windows 7 I get the proper Dialog as shown in the Attachment.
Adding an exception works fine with Seamonkey trunk on win7.
I got the same problem on another machine with Firefox 14.0 and Linux Mint. However the problem disappear when I move ~/.mozilla/firefox somewhere and restart Firefox. I guess the problem appears when someone has visited the website at a time where the certificate was valid. It will however be much more complicate to reproduce the bug. Thanks anyway.
