    Just started using Firefox and cannot log into my router with it.....invalid certificate issue... IE works ok. I read a while back there was an issue with invalid certificates but cannot find the post. Im using Thibor 15c...can someone point me in the right direction.

    never know FF to use certificates for logging onto a GUI.

    since MSIE works then this is not a Firmware issue.

    I would reinstall FF tbh.

    moved to general discussion.

    WRT54G Firefox Certificate

    A certificate is used when using SSL to access the router, using 3rd party firmware. I have the same issue as squibtone.

    Solution is to either use MSIE, or avoid https.

    There may be a security setting in Firefox that will bypass the certificate requirement, but I have not found it.

    go into Tools, Options, Advanced. thats where the Certs are, try playing with the settings of them.

    I have the same problem and others with SSL and reported it on this tread:

    tempralflux: The certicifate works fine the first time but if you reboot the router then the problem starts, if you saved the certificate, the only way to make it work again is deleting the certificate from firefox. If you selected to use the certificate only this session, then you have to close all firefox windows and restart firefox to make it work again...

    What is the name of the certificate?

    IE says the name of the cert is Linksys so I Exported and Imported it into worky...(did reinstall FF to the latest version)...

    Something strange here...

    Where are all the Linux guys? one uses FF with Thibors firmware?

    Delete Linksys, restart FF, you'll be prompted to accept a certificate from Linksys again.
    The only time it happens is if a) you upgrade your FF b) you upgrade your firmware, in my experience anyway, but YMMV.

    It happens each time the router is restarted. As others said, delete the certificate, and you will be able to accept it again.

    Question on IE 6&7 and FireFox v1.0 - 2.x

    Anyone able to tell me if trusting this cert for HTTPS/SSH will have any ramifications (Spell Check) later on!? I got a msg that said if you accept to trust this certificate without authenticating it as legit you could have problems. I wasn't able to find anything on this subject online or on Linksys website. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
