It was fine for me at home on Firefox on Peppermint 6.  (current version)

However, I just had that messed up looking crap on Chrome on my phone.  It happened a few times then reverted back to normal.  The only thing I can suggest is clearing your cache and reloading the page.
cleared all cache, it still looks like a text file...  :(

@rjm65:
Did you download and accept the certificate?
As a temporarily workaround see this previous post (Firefox screenshot and below).

At the error page choose "Advanced" and "Add Exception". Add (download/accept) the offered certificate.
This got everything working for me in Firefox...

I'm sure PCNetSpec and possibly others are working on it!  8)

Chromium and Google Chrome accept the certificate without a blink but give an "Outdated Cipher Suite" without any effects.

Hope this helps!  ;)

since what you displayed in previous post is not in english I can not read it....
also i don't get choices in my firefox to do anything, it just pops up a warning,
and i have a choice of OK or to X out the box, either choice exits the warning box, and takes me to a blank tab...   :(

Firefox version here is 45.0.1
Since you apparently don't have the same options (Advanced and Add Exception) as I see, I'm out of ideas...  :(

I have the same version 45.0.1, i clicked tools, then options, then advanced,
and there are 4 or 5 tabs in advanced, and none of those tabs have any exceptions in them...

I think you misunderstood me...   :-\
The "Advanced" is on the error screen (= previous screenshot) and if I click that I get the fault message and below it the "Add Exception".

My best translation for the previous screenshot:
Terug = Back
Geavanceerd = Advanced
Uitzondering toevoegen... = Add exception...

If you don't have these options this obviously is a dead end...  ;)

If you look at the screen shot i posted in the last message, my error box is nothing like the one you get
with the german language and choices, i have no choices, which unfortunately for me means i can not add the exception...  :(

Cipher suite updated

Nobody should need to download a certificate, or add an exception (we're not using self signed certificates) .. if you're having to do that there's something wrong at your end.

I'm also running Firefox 45.0 and not having any issues at all

Any Ideas why all of my firefoxes are like this???
I tried pep6 firefox, linux mint firefox, and antix mx15 firefox, and they are all doing this...
the only browser I have that can see the forum normally is internet explorer in windows 7...

GG Mark !  You put out all the fires on my end ...   :)

All I'm seeing is a single jQuery script warning, and warnings don't count IMO, e.g. no harm, no foul.

But wait ...

I was double-checking the console.

That jQuery warning isn't from this site.  A chrome extension is causing it.  LoL   :D

EDIT

Did some more checking.  Ghostery is the source of the warning.   ;)

@ VinDSL

It *was* this site, jsquery javascript was calling http://ajax.googleapis.com for the social media buttons at the top of the page .. once I changed that to 'https' the warning disappeared and the buttons reappeared :)

Wasn't 'quite' that simple .. just to be awkward the jsquery script called it from some other file, that called it from another file, that called .. well you get the picture  ???

[EDIT]

Oh, sorry, yeah that's different to the one I fixed, which was the one in your earlier pic  :-[

Strange that they both originate at a JQuery javascript  ???

Have you cleared the Firefox web cache and restarted Firefox ?

Maybe also try running
Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean startand restarting your router.

and try firing up Firefox with
Code: [Select]
firefox --safe-mode
is it messed up at both
http://forum.peppermintos.com
and
https://forum.peppermintos.com
?

Has the charset been switched from UTF-8 to winders-1252  - or am I imagining things ?

The fonts seem a lot smaller now.   :-\
