<h1 class="title">"How to troubleshoot the error code "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" on secure websites</h1> On websites which are supposed to be secure (the URL begins with "https://"), Firefox must verify that the certificate presented by the website is valid. If the certificate cannot be validated, Firefox will stop the connection to the website and show a "Your connection is not secure" error message instead. This article explains why you might see the error code "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" on websites and how to troubleshoot it."

That would be because Fredd has nothing new to add to his previous comments on this subject. wink.gif

In short, there's little point in encrypting information that has no value to anyone who might have the means, motive and opportunity to intercept it and is publicly accessible once it's been posted anyway.

Well you've missed the "not secure" warnings that just about every browser has been displaying for the last 6 months or so, so probably you have. tongue.gif

Doesn't that create a risk to non-public information like PMs, passwords, email addresses etc?

Personally, setting HTTPS up with something like letsencrypt may well help indirectly - Google tends to rank such sites higher up, and most servers only support faster protocols such as HTTP/2 for connections using certificates.

Of course, people shouldn't be reusing passwords across sites, however that is always going to be an issue if you use HTTP or not regardless....
