Are you sure you hadn't just magnified the page one step on the old site

Ctrl + +

as it's a new site address it would have gone back to default in your browser.

[EDIT]

Actually now you've said it .. the fonts do look 'different' somehow (not just smaller but somehow sharper edged, it shows more in bold) .. I'll see what I can dig up .. probably an incorrect path somewhere in the theme, so it's dropped to a default.

[EDIT 2]

Oh $%^ .. now I'm not sure any more  :-\

[EDIT 3]

Sod it, time for bed, this is doing my head in  >:(

In Internet Explorer 11 the forum works for both HTTP and HTTPS.

In Pale Moon 25.7.3 (a firefox derivative) the forum appears as unthemed text, and I cannot connect over HTTPS (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer). I am prompted to create an exception for an "invalid security certificate", but am not able to make the exception.

In Ice Weasel 38.7.1 (a firefox derivative) the forum appears as unthemed text, and I cannot connect over HTTPS (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer). I am prompted to create an exception for an "invalid security certificate", and once done I can connect over HTTPS, and the site appears themed.

This site is also very slow, but that could just be my horrible internet connection.
I'll put something here later.

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

Sorry but I still have to add the certificate to get things working...
Tested on Firefox 45.0.1 in safe mode: Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer
After adding the certificate everything works like a charm!

The http version gives me the broken text version (like mentioned by others), if I add the certificate everything works. So the certificate has an influence on the http version!

(Chromium and Google Chrome don't have problems with https and http...)

Result for the SSL Server Test shows the RC4 "problem" is gone but still shows the SSLv3 and Additional Certificates Chain Issue and that last one is apparently a problem for Firefox and related browsers. And since I'm not the only one that has that problem I don't think it's local?

Hope this helps because that's the intention!  ;)

Hi GNULINUX,

This is very strange. I use Firefox exclusively and with version 45.0.1 I am having absolutely no problems of any sort-- and this is since yesterday evening (08.04.2016). I have not needed to do anything regarding certificates and have seen no warnings or errors of any sort.  :-\

Regards,

Yep, I'd previously posted ths was a possible DNS catchup issue .. but it isn't .. I'm looking into it now.

Weird that only firefox is affected  :-\

Can someone please confirm that the non-ssl version of the forum is no longer corrupt and is displaying correctly ?

working ok here on Pep 6

I would test in Win 10 but its updating...  will report back later....                                                                 much later....

edit:  This is Firefox 45.0.1 and I have no exceptions added here

2nd edit:  Windows 10 is still the same and after new release installed it has conveniently forgotten my previous exception.... nice of it.  MS Edge still works fine both https and http

I had to add an exception for the Peppermint forum.
