Title: icetv https ceritificates no longer trusted by Chrome or Firefox
Post by: skip on September 03, 2018, 11:37:17 AM
Visiting icetv in a pre-release version of Firefox or Chrome shows that the connection isn't trusted. This is apparently because icetv uses a symantec issued certificate, which are no longer being trusted by these browsers. While only users of the pre-release versions (eg, "Firefox Nightly", "Firefox Beta", "Chrome Canary") see a problem, very soon all users of these browsers will be unable to connect to the web-site.

For more, see:

* https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2018/03/12/distrust-symantec-tls-certificates/

Getting a new certificate from https://letsencrypt.org/ is probably the most cost-effective option.

Hope this is useful and posted in the correct place.

Hi Mark,

Yes, we are aware of this one, our certificate is due for renewal this week anyway so you will see it change shortly.
