Strange SSL woes
I encountered a strange problem yesterday that I am still trying to resolve. Basically I went to an HTTPS url in Firefox and it got very upset. Essentially tells me that the connection is not secure because the certificate can't be found for the CA. Running a test on the verisign site also produces a fail that says "The intermediate CA certificate cannot be found for the following certificate chain".
What I really don't understand is that IE on various machines at various locations don't have a problem. And FireFox (same version on same OS and arch) doesn't have a problem either in another location.
Yet running the versign test from any location produces the same results. Fail.
So either Verisign (and my Firefox) has lost their minds or a bunch of browsers are trusting a certificate they shouldn't be. Either one of those is bad. Or there's something entirely else I'm missing.
This doesn't make any sense to me.
