Mark Graves has passed away.

Have you tried deleting your Firefox cache from within the application?

Are you having any other problems with Firefox? It is strange to have a singelar problem with one website.

Hi rmj65,

We are looking into getting the certificate renewed. In the mean time, make sure you have the latest version of firefox. I click on the Advanced button on the warning page and then I am able to click on the button in the lower right corner to access the  forum login page.

Regards,

I did get a security warning on that. Now I know what it was about and will be fixed.

Some certificate warnings are fixed by the time they are reported so I didn't say anything.

I know Mark passed away, if you bothered to check, you would have seen i posted in there when he passed...   i put that in my post cause he would have never let this go on for so long, since he was a firefox fanboy.....
anyhow it still does not work, and it is the only site that does not work in firefox....
i have no advanced box in my alert like the other guy has, so that is not an option....
i have to load chrome to see the forum, so i don't get here much anymore cause i can't use my firefox....

#teampeppermint are in contact with @PCNetSpec's heirs about re-discovery of credentials.  :-\

I'm clueless about why your version of Firefox doesn't provide the Certification bypass option though @rjm56?

also, please check your pms

Hi all, I'm currently in contact with the webhost to try to resolve the issue.

Yeah, I tried for over 10 hours yesterday to resolve the certificate issue. Unfortunately I wasn't successful yet but I'll be at it again this evening.

#teampeppermint (specifically @josephd alone) is still navigating the many layers of PCNetSpec's security and unravelling his web hosting set up rmj65. Our apologies as we ask for all forum members continued patience.

It was a herculean effort on @josephd's account, which couldn't have proceeded without @PCNetSpec's son @Marcus... please give them both a round of applause
