    I keep getting the following error when trying to access the WebGUI from Firefox, but not from IE:

    Any idea's on how to fix this? I assume I just need to delete the cert from Firefox, but I can't figure out which one or where it is?
    TIA,

    I use HTTPS for the router config as well. Older versions of Tomato (such as the one in your sig) had that problem. Upgrading to a newer firmware version will prevent that problem from happening again in the future.

    You can regain access in Firefox by deleting the old certificate. Go into the prefs and look for something like Privacy, Security, or maybe advanced. When you find it, tell it to show certificates and then delete the old certificate.

    If you want to be really secure when you accept the router certificate again, temporarily turn off wireless on your computer and tell your browser to always accept the certificate.

    Hmm. I haven't actually used Firefox in some time because Camino is a bit better on the Mac. I seem to remember that Firefox has a menu item called something like "Clear Private Data..." I think it's under Tools, and it brings up a dialog boxes with some check boxes (cookies, cache, etc.). Maybe there's a checkbox for certificates in there and you could uncheck everything else before clearing.

    Found it in: Tools -> Options... -> Privacy -> Private Data

    But it doesn't look like it has a checkbox for certs:

    I cleared it anyways (thinking "Authenticated Sessions", might be the same as a cert), but it didn't work, same problem :(

    Any ideas?
    Thanks again for all your help Macskeeball

    I did some searching on Google and Mozillazine, and it sounds like you have a browser bug. The certificate is supposed to appear under the "Web Sites" section of "View Certificates." You might want to ask about this in the Firefox Support forum, perhaps including a link to this thread. Maybe there's a certificate-related file in your Firefox profile folder that you can delete.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if Firefox used the same filename as Camino (even though they're both Mozilla-based), or where to find the Firefox profile folder when on Windows. Glad we could help.
