[UNRELATED] Problems registering and using this forum

Post by Wandy » Thu Jan 12, 2017 10:53 am

Hi.

I'd like to report that it is impossible to use this forum from Firefox and had several issues registering and using it from IE 11.

Firefox reports: Secure Connection Failed. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

In I.E. 11, it is useable but there were several times even during the registration process where "This page can’t be displayed" message appeared and i had to refresh it in order to proceed with the process.

Works for me. What version of Firefox?

50.1.0. I've even tried creating a new clean profile, but no luck. I (still) can access the forum only with IE 11.

Win7SP1 here.

P.S.: I'll try later from home. I wonder if it has something to do with firewalls...

OK, scratch that. At home it seems to work fine. The problems exist if i try connecting from a workplace, so i guess it has something to do with firewalls and security permissions.
