Security Certificates driving me crazy???

    I just got off the phone with Comcast, my ISP. The tech support person
    suggested that I click thru those warnings, as that's what she does anyway.

    Now I used to use Internet Explorer because I thought that was the part of
    the problem.

    I just installed Netscape 8 (it never happened with 7.2) and I get the same
    freaking error.

    This is particularly galling if you sell on ebay, where the same message
    comes up around one thousand times.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Surely there is a setting in security to turn off certificate warnings. (at
    my own risk of course)

    I remember checking my version of IE, and not finding it.

    mr sort of angry

    (Even when you *do* take the time to "install" the certificate, you still
    get errors)

    How about these as a start...


    Internet Options

    Advanced tab

    Security section

    [ x ] Check for publisher's certificate revocation
    [ x ] Check for server certificate revocation (requires restart)
    [ x ] Check for signatures on downloaded programs
    [ x ] Warn about invalid site certificates

    Deselect those options (although as you say, it's a bad idea)

    Sorry, as I don't use Netscape I can't advise on that. However, I gave you
    an answer about IE6 because of these comments in your original post...

    As you switched to Netscape and had the same problem as you experienced when
    using Internet Explorer this would tend to suggest that the problem wasn't
    browser specific, wouldn't it? If you want to be sure try yet another
    browser, e.g. Firefox.

    So I told you where the settings were. Sorry that wasn't seen as helpful.

    Actually Dave, those are ALL "unchecked" already.

    So maybe we're talking a bug or something.

    However, I *DO* appreciate your answers, as do others I'm sure.

    Sorry for re-posting,

    But does anyone else know what's going on here?
